Are you wondering which NYC preschool is right for your child? The options are almost endless — how can you choose the one that’s right for your child?
You’ve come to the right place.
We discussed a few reasons why we believe every child should attend our NYC preschool in a previous entry, so be sure to catch up on that information if you haven’t had a chance to read through it.
Today’s post is a continuation of that discussion, and we hope it will be useful as you search for the perfect preschool program for your child. If you think that The Art Farm NYC would be a good fit, we invite you to reach out to us as soon as possible — spots are filling up quickly!
Why You Should Enroll Your Child In Our NYC Preschool
Young children are curious about the world around them and we encourage them to get in touch with nature as much as possible. Children have a natural tendency to enjoy experiences in nature such as digging in the soil or collecting rocks. We do many physical science experiments throughout the year that involve connecting the children with nature. Also meeting and learning about our animals adds exposure to nature in a hands-on way. With each of our classrooms flooded with warm natural sunlight, your children will be surrounded by natural elements in our program.
Motor Skill Development
Motor skill development and hand-eye coordination are important milestones in every child’s life. We take fine and gross motor skill development seriously, and almost every activity we schedule includes some form of practice. From practicing whole-body movements at the Asphalt Green playground to using paintbrushes and putting together puzzles, you’ll notice a difference in your child’s physical abilities when they’ve completed our program.
Healthy Eating Habits
Do you struggle to get your child to eat their vegetables? What about eating in general?
Whether or not you have a picky eater under your roof, sometimes an outside influence is all it takes to change their habits. Our preschool focuses on developing healthy eating habits and encouraging children to make nutritious choices when it comes to their meals. We also include age-appropriate cooking lessons in our full-size country kitchen under the guidance of our talented teachers — you’ll be amazed at what your little chef can create!
Improved Linguistic Skills
If you think carefully about it, your child hasn’t had the chance to converse with many people who aren’t you. Maybe they have a few friends with whom you schedule playdates every now and then, but their conversational abilities are still fairly limited.
Our NYC preschool aims to change that.
We encourage all of our preschoolers to use their words and converse appropriately with adults and children their age. We also work with our preschoolers on how to be good listeners. After all, learning how to listen is one of the most important conversational skills all of us can work on, no matter how old we are!
Art and Music Time
We strongly believe in the power of children expressing themselves through art. During art in school, we encourage individual originality and creativity. Children will be encouraged to explore art through a myriad of materials and mediums.
We also believe in the importance of music in early childhood. Our children participate in music every week with an Art Farm teacher leading the class with guitar and percussion instruments while singing, dancing, and playing music games.
As we mentioned in our previous blog post, our program revolves around live animals and we present fun and engaging science lessons and experiments which educate and foster a sense of wonder about the world.
