Field trips & Outings

MNS believes children learn more effectively through hands-on and interactive experiences. Field trips encourage all children with different learning styles to try new things in their preferred way (visual, auditory, kinetic, etc.) and build new interests.

MNS visits an apple orchard, Macy’s Santa Land, Madison Square Garden to see a musical show, museums and a farm/zoo.

If weather allows, children take a short walk around the neighborhood daily. As a summer program, children visit Madison Square Park weekly to play in the outdoor playground and join various park events, such as a read aloud, art activity or concert.


With 21 years of experience in the childcare and early learning center, Manhattan Nursery School nurtures your child’s growth and curious mind.
