Battery Park City Day Nursery provides a safe and comfortable environment where learning can be accomplished at an individual rate. We are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and approved by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
We use a Best Practices Approach where developmentally appropriate activities and a “hands-on” approach make school fun. Best Practices takes into consideration a child’s learning style and temperament plus various educational philosophies to create an environment that is flexible to a child’s needs. Rather than following a single teaching method, and forcing a child to conform to our setting, teachers get to know each child and then create a classroom which is accepting of your child’s abilities.
Our certified and credentialed teachers provide an atmosphere that builds trust, self-esteem and confidence in one’s potential. There is opportunity for child-initiated choice time as well as small and large group teacher-directed activities. By offering options within a structured day, children acquire skills that enable them to deal with a variety of situations. Through gathered information and shared ideas, we help them see relationships which will lead them to better understand their world.Schedule a Tour
