Four’s Pre-K & Tuition Options (2020 – 2021 School Year)
Our pre-school program for 3-year-olds builds on the focuses of our two-year-old pre-school program. We help children further develop their independence, social skills, and introduce them to some of the foundational skills they will need in elementary school. Much like our program for 2-year-olds, this program will also help your child develop their fine motor skills and show them that getting active can be fun.
All of our programs include lessons about environmental responsibility and the importance of a healthy diet. Once each month, children will have the opportunity to cook and taste new foods. They will also have the opportunity to learn about many different kinds of animals, providing them with educational experiences that are rare in NYC.
8am – 6pm care is available, please contact our preschool director for more information.

Preschool at The Art Farm, a one of a kind program!
Our philosophy is to provide opportunities for our children to grow socially, emotionally, and intellectually in a warm, loving, and nurturing environment. We believe children learn through hands-on activities and exploration through the arts and nature. Children will be exposed to a wide variety of programming which will engage them in a play-based learning environment with a strong sense of age-appropriate academics. Our little students learn to become self-reliant and develop a strong self-image as we encourage everyone’s various learning styles and interests. The incredible connection between children and animals promotes the love of nature and the outside world, which is especially valuable in a city environment. We also encourage healthy eating habits as well as environmental responsibility through recycling.
Throughout the day, the children are encouraged to socialize with their peers and work together in a classroom setting. Our program runs from September through June.
At The Art Farm NYC, we believe that children thrive when they’re engaged in a program that stimulates them physically, emotionally, and intellectually. We have a passion for environmental stewardship and hands-on experiences with nature, and we believe that these values are particularly important in a city like New York.
Our 2s and 3s is based on a monthly theme curriculum with a focus on colors, shapes, numbers, and letters.
Daily Live Animal Science Lessons
Every day in school, a live animal will visit your child’s classroom. The teachers will teach the children how to hold and pet the animal as well as teach them about their natural environments, diets, characteristics, and more. Physical science is also a strong part of our curriculum. The children engage in many different experiments and discuss the results.
Children are encouraged to express themselves through art and take pride and ownership in their work.
We feel learning through arts is very important. Our children participate in music every week. Your child will also sing along with the guitar and play instruments with one of our own music teachers each week.
Our little chefs will cook right in our country kitchen using fresh, healthy, whole-food ingredients and their own cooking utensils. We promote healthy eating habits while cooking and provide fresh fruit during snack time.
We believe children should be out in nature as much as possible. Children enjoy outdoor time at the Asphalt Green playground. Students will be encouraged to develop their gross motor skills with the age-appropriate apparatus in the toddler area. We will encourage children to play in the sandbox and foster friendships among their classmates at the playground.
