The International Preschools's Full Profile
Our story begins more than 50 years ago when we were founded to serve the needs of international families, connected to the U.N. Since then, we’ve grown into a recognized leader in the New York education community, welcoming a diverse mix of both American and international families. IPS now has three locations in vibrant Manhattan neighborhoods. Each location benefits from the unique character and resources of its nearby community, while maintaining a consistent curriculum and a dedication to the core principles that make The International Preschools an educational opportunity unlike any other.

The preschool years are a crucial window in a child’s academic, social and cultural development. In the few years spent at The International Preschools, a child will develop not only academic skills but also social skills and cultural attitudes. At The International Preschools, where English language learners are welcomed and supported, children and families from New York City and all over the world share their cultures and gain a sense of international awareness through mutual understanding and respect. Through play, we promote the cognitive, emotional, social and physical growth of each child in a nurturing atmosphere. With schools in multiple Manhattan neighborhoods children may attend school close to home while their families are part of a large and vibrant parent and faculty network. The size of The International Preschools allows us to be a laboratory for curriculum development, including a rich variety of specialty activities based on early childhood educational research and good practices.
