Having looked at a number of preschool options in NYC and Brooklyn, we chose to go with Kane Street Kids Synagogue pre-school. We would rate it the very best. We are not members of the Synagogue but had heard wonderful reviews from parents, and found it to be very welcoming to all families. Our son was there 2 years and we could not have been happier. The program is scaled to be very small, focusing on pre-school with relatively small classes. There is a great deal of attention given to each child and the administration is very responsive and available. Our child got into Universal Pre-K so now we have the good problem of explaining to our little boy why he must leave his 2nd home at KSK to go to a public school. We adored all of the teachers and the transition for the 2s program was so sweet under Nari with a seamless transition the following year to Olivia and Emily’s fun filled 3’s class where they focused on a given theme and weaved it into the class for several days (wheels – by visiting a local bicycle shop, having wheel show and tell and constructing things with wheels). Peggy Geller is the director and has started some very nice traditions including a school year book and an end of the year picnic to say good bye. I’d be happy to discuss KSK or our process with anyone navigating this very complicated process.
