About Us


Our Philosophy

Children go through certain stages of development in different paces. Manhattan Nursery School provides children with a developmentally appropriate program so that each child is able to learn and develop his/her skills throughout social and emotional interactions.

We are focused on creating a safe, warm, nurturing and learning environment for our children to develop healthy self expression and be life long achievers. Also, we help children be able to learn different cultures and similarities and differences among them while storybooks and multicultural dolls help enhance their appreciation of their peers.

Our school provides a creative environment so that children's cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development can be expanded. Language skills are developed through stories read-aloud, songs, music, circle-time, discussion, and conversation with peers and teachers.

Our children and teachers are always respected and trusted. Also, through UPK program for 4-year-old children our professional teachers encourage children to become peaceful problem solvers and successful members of society through enriched early childhood experiences.

School History

In 1996, a dedicated educator from New York City, Sinok Park, founded Manhattan Nursery School for working parents in New York metropolitan area.

Our school provided a quality nursery program with three classrooms and devoted teachers midtown in Manhattan. Five years later our school expanded the number of classrooms to 7 and raised the number of teachers to match the growing enrollment and meet the needs of parents and community.

We now admit children of any national, ethnic origin, and religion to all the rights, privileges and programs generally accorded or made available to every student at our school.
