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.
As a child I attended this school 25 years ago & now as a mother there is no other place I would bring my child! When I was a child I made my mother walk me to school during a blizzard because i did not want to miss a day & now my son is the same way. Just spending a little time in the classroom & its no wonder why my son loves his school so much! The school & staff is warm, welcoming, and nurturing. They understand & respect all children's' abilities & help to develop them as a whole individual. You won't find the drill & kill method of memorizing meaningless information; instead you will find children exploring their world through play. I am a stay-at-home mom, who has my masters in early childhood education & the corner school classroom, staff, & program is developmental appropriate for they children they service. My only regret is that they don't have more grade levels.....who would want to go to the big school when we are soooo comfy in the little neighborhood school house! I love Corner school 25 years ago, I love it today and I can not wait till my daughter is old enough to attend as well...the family tradition lives on =o)
