From the Director:
There are many attributes that combine to make our school stand out: One unique facet to our school is the "Today We" email we send to all Preschool parents letting them know about their childâ€™s day. This is a great tool for fostering communication between parents and children, and between parents and teachers and the school. A Family Fitness Membership is included with your tuition. We are pleased to be able to upgrade your family to a full Fitness Membership for the same required 16th Street J community membership fee included in your monthly tuition. Your family will have access to all of the fitness facilitiesâ€”pool, gymnasium squash and racquetball courts, locker rooms, fitness centerâ€”and a wide range of group exercise classes free to Fitness Members. Thatâ€™s a savings of $1,300 each year! As always, your 16th Street J membership gives you substantial discounts on camp and other programs. We are open 7:30 am-6:00 pm, which fits the needs of working families. We consider ourselves a "preschool with daycare hours." We are housed in a community center with a thriving arts program. We have access to the gallery, theater, and music and literature festivals. The 16th Street J also boasts a swimming pool and six indoor play spaces. Our unique urban location gives our children more opportunities for exploration and learning. We are between Dupont Circle and Logan Circle, and we have easy access to parks, public transportation, museums, local shops (who support our class visits) and more to make frequent adventuring in the city easy. These, of course, are in addition to the Reggio-inspired curriculum, warm and professional teachers, commitment to parent involvement and more that youâ€™ve come to expect from our school. Iâ€™m sure youâ€™ll agree that the 16th Street J has a lot to offer your family.
