On My Own – preschool program for children NYC

On My Own - preschool program for children NYC

“Our daughter is full of anticipation, and we are very happy to see her so involved with friends. I think I’ll always remember picking her up at the program, and how she went from having to be carried downstairs to descending confidently on her own, in the space of half a year.”

Preschool program for toddlers

Discovery’s preschool program for two year olds is a warm and nurturing introduction to school. Toddlers are supported as they develop greater independence, curiosity and love for learning and friendships. In On My Own, parents separate gradually over the first few weeks providing a natural and organic phase-in period and an opportunity to build the necessary skills for a successful transition to preschool. Our curriculum, through the creative arts and dramatic play, provides open ended experiences in music, art, pre-math, science and literacy. Teachers encourage social growth, creative problem solving and language development as they guide youngsters in experiences that lead to new learning and understanding in their first preschool experience. Children also visit our state of the art gym for gym and have structured music and movement with our music specialist.

On My Own includes the important routines of preschool such as sitting at circle time, following direction, making independent choices and building connections with friends. Curriculum includes seasons, families, individuality, and community. Parents can feel secure that their child will be nurtured and that the child will be excited to come to preschool each day.
