General School Mission

"The mission of the York Avenue Preschool is to provide children from diverse backgrounds with a comprehensive traditional early childhood education which integrates art, music, physical education, and French for the 4's class in a safe, warm environment. The curriculum is developmental and is based on the guidelines of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), and standards of the New York State Department of Education. The fulfillment of our mission would not be complete with out the involvement and participation of the parents. We see parents frequently at our school social events, parent association meetings, parent teacher conferences, and other activities."
