My daughter attended the Corner School free UPK program this past year. She was in a private nursery school prior to that and I have an older child in public school. I was upset that my daughter did no receive a placement in the UPK at my son's school and in hindsight, because of the tremendous experience we had at the Corner School, I am so thankful she didn't. There are so many schools, including the Corner School, that have great academic programs but very few provide it in the nurturing environment that exists here. As an experienced parent in the school system, I can confidently say that this school is truly special because of the staff's commitment to each child-academically and personally. The size of the school allows for a truly collaborative relationship with the staff and the parents. Parents are always welcome to drop in any time and are encouraged to be active. "Community" is central to this school's spirit and a value that I share in my family; to have that value reinforced in an academic environment with nurturing staff is the best I could have hoped for and received. We feel apart of a family and will try to visit our "corner school" and support it.
My 4 year-old attends currently, five days a week 9am - 4pm. We are extremely happy with The Corner School and wish we'd discovered it two years ago. The staff is warm, skilled and accessible, the program in accordance with NYC D.O.E. standards, the facility charming and the rates more than reasonable. There's a great after-hours flexibility as well. My wife and I are both teachers and we did a lot of shopping around and comparing pre-K options. This is a great little school. There is also a bus service associated with the school that we engage - very reliable, very affordable.
My daughter and son both attended the Corner School from 2008 until this past June, 2012. The nursery and pre-k program prepared them well for kindergarten and they made many great friends. The teachers and instructors are experienced with many years of working with toddlers and pre-schoolers. But most importantly the staff is caring and takes seriously the task of caring for the children. The Corner School is also exceptional because the school is a cooperative and the parents have a significant say in how the program is run.
Being an elementary school teacher for many years, I knew what I was looking for when it came to choosing a nursery/pre-kindergarten school for my children. The Corner School had everything I was looking for. The classroom learning environment is warm, inviting, and vibrant. The staff are dedicated, experienced teachers who are also friendly, caring and patient. As a parent I am always welcome to visit my son s class and have been invited to do so several times. The children are encouraged to learn through self exploration and play. Routines and a structured flow of the day are also evidently in place. My son comes home everyday sharing new ideas and facts that he has learned in school. Sometimes I am truly amazed at the knowledge he has acquired from school. As a parent, there is no better feeling then seeing your child genuinely happy and excited to go to school each day. I highly recommend The Corner School to any parent looking for the best education, along with a safe and nurturing learning environment for their child.
