The Washington Market School is an early childhood center in Lower Manhattan serving the community and its children since 1976.

Welcome to WMS

A child-centered, nurturing environment designed to spark curiosity and inspire a lifelong love of learning.

we’ll guide you through every step

Admissions

Your child is unique. So is our process.

Applying to The Washington Market School is a bit different—first off, we don’t believe in formal interviews with children. Moreover, during the admissions process you’ll get a chance to sit in on classes, meet other prospective parents, and get to know our community. With one-on-one support and open conversations, we’ll guide you through every step.

Get Started

From our Community

“School admissions can be daunting in NYC, but somehow Washington Market felt different – thoughtful, kind and caring. The process felt more like a conversation about the best interests of our children and family rather than an evaluation.”

“One of the things that we found so special about Washington Market is how exactly right it was for our two very different children - it has been a magical place for our kids to grow.”

“WMS is a warm and wonderful environment where children are encouraged to explore, learn and have fun. The school is its own force field of positive energy and love.”
