Milestones UWS Preschool is a unique, home-based learning environment located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. We are licensed by New York State as a group family day care, but run our program as a traditional preschool.
We provide a loving, caring, and safe environment with an emphasis on child-centered, hands-on, play-based learning. We implement an age-appropriate curriculum which is based around units of study such as “All About Me,” “The 5 Senses,” “Healthy Bodies,” “Community Helpers,” and much more. We have a consistent schedule, seasonal, unit, and interest-based activities, and everything we do promotes learning in a fun and enjoyable way.
Though we work on literacy, mathematics, science, and other academics, our core focus is on social-emotional development. Our main goal is to help students develop kindness, consideration of others, self-confidence, and intrinsic motivation. We work to provide students with tools and traits they can bring with them not only to Kindergarten, but to life beyond school as well.
We enroll children ages 2 through 4. We have a maximum of 12 students per day, with all students in one mixed-age classroom. We have enrollment options of 2, 3, and 5 days per week.
