Our nurturing staff provide a caring and supportive environment and create a welcoming, inclusive atmosphere to facilitate connection and friendship. During camp your child will connect with peers and with nature, gain personal and social confidence, and make friends. Through hands on, developmentally-tailored educational activities, children gain confidence, independence, and skills. Our program provides excellent pre-academic and social preparation for children entering preschool programs, and their daily exposure to Mandarin Chinese stimulates their curiosity to language and to Mandarin Chinese, in particular.
We believe that children thrive when provided with opportunities to connect with nature, and we spend time enjoying outdoor play and exploration in beautiful Battery Park City. Children also have the opportunity to enjoy fun in the sun on our private outdoor patio, which features a child-maintained garden and water play.
