From infancy through early childhood young students are exposed to mindful and purposeful play, increasing self awareness, strengthening the brain, and stimulating creative expression and knowledge.


Our goal is to provide a nurturing and dynamic environment that fosters imagination, curiosity and self-confidence in young children. Our classes promote cognitive, creative and social development through play, exploration and autonomous self-expression. This builds a solid foundation and love of learning.

Our classes focus on the process, not the final product. We encourage children to get messy, move freely to the beat, and explore the world around them in a safe, child-centered/teacher-facilitated environment. Our curriculum offers a wide range of classes that create a fun and educational environment for infants and children up to 5 years. Our program is progressive focusing on the importance of age-appropriate activities. Our youngest learners explore their senses, cause and effect, and social interaction. Toddlers build language through interaction and parallel play. Ages 3- 5 gain coordination, confidence, cognitive and technical skills in our renowned preschool program as well as enrichment classes and workshops.

What Parents are Saying

“I have watched my little boys develop into independent and confident children who love going to school. I realized early on that Citischool was the best preschool choice for my family. My children have been Citischoolers’ from the earliest age possible. The teachers are nurturing, smart and focus on each child as an individual and the curriculum is rich in social, emotional and intellectual development. I have watched my little boys develop into independent and confident children who love going to school.”

“CitiSchool is good for the whole family. Each of our children has a very different personality, and they each have blossomed with the positive and respectful ways the teachers instruct each child. We can easily say that if you are looking for a warm and nurturing environment as your child’s first school experience, Citibabes/CitiSchool is the right one. Your child will learn important life skills such as making friends, sharing and respect for others, as well as readiness skills, all the while building a positive self image, and they will receive a great foundation for learning and be transitioned to elementary school successfully… CitiSchool is good for the whole family, we are looking forward to see our twins integrate the CitiSchool 2s program next year.”
