With a variety of learning styles, our curriculum engages and inspires an intrinsic love of learning. Our students develop the thinking skills and strategies they will carry with them as they grow into critical thinkers! Some ways we learn here at Preschool of America, Battery Park City:
Physics through Play: Building Blocks of learning! Working with 3d shapes, construction, architecture and balance, we discover how objects relate to each other and how things move through space. We transfer this knowledge and apply it throughout our lives in a variety of settings and in everything we do!
Arts & Music: Here at Preschool of America Battery Park City we immerse our children in the Arts! One on one piano lessons, eastern yoga practices, mediation and art as literacy expression are just a few of the ways we learn about ourselves and about the world around us.
Dual language: English & Mandarin The children learn conversational basics organically, through circle time songs, cultural dances, games and creative play. Our story times, art & piano lessons are also in Mandarin. Culturally, this program allows for an appreciation of diversity and social awareness. Mathematically and musically, Mandarin language aids students in internalizing mathematical concepts, allows for more creative thinking, subtle and complex tonal awareness, organizing thought and patterning concepts.
