The mission of York Avenue Preschool is to provide the whole child with the foundation for growth in all developmental domains.  Young children learn best in a supportive, nurturing, structured, engaging environment through hands-on-experiences.  Each child’s curiosity is embraced to facilitate cognitive, social-emotional, and physical growth.  Our exceptional teachers provide classroom environments that foster engagement and love of learning.

York Avenue Preschool welcomes our families to be partners in learning.  Parents are involved in all school functions, classroom celebrations, parent-teacher conferences, and all Parent Association sponsored events.  The fulfillment of our school’s mission is complete with the involvement and participation of all of our parents.



York Avenue Preschool is a private independent, not-for-profit coeducational preschool, licensed by the Department of Health, Bureau of Daycare of the City of New York, and chartered by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York.

We are a member of the Independent Schools Admissions Association of Greater New York (I.S.A.A.G.N.Y.), and the Parents League.
