A child-centered, nurturing environment designed to spark curiosity and inspire a lifelong love of learning.
Our unique approach blends Montessori and Reggio Emilia practices to give early learners daily opportunities to grow. They ask questions, collaborate, explore & create meaning.
A meaningful education begins when a child first enters the classroom. They practice independence by choosing their work and how to complete their work cycle. Meetings offer a sense of community and curiosity is given direction through intention and exploration.
Programs customized to suit your family’s needs, including half-day sessions, a full-day program, early drop-off, after-school activities, and summer camp.
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.
“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.”
– From a current WMS parent
“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.”
