We strive to create an environment that allows each child to feel safe, known, comfortable, and accepted.
We offer morning and afternoon classes for children ages two through first grade.
Enrichment opportunities include Young Authors, Drama Around the World, Math in Motion, Sports, Art, Science, and Young Architects.
Our integrated curriculum, based on New York State standards, fosters abstract and concrete thinking skills.

School Reviews

  • Recommended August 14, 2014 - This school is excellent. They are very creative and caring - they are play based, and yet most kids excel academically. It''s because they sneak the learning in... Jane is the Director and caring but also a "nerd" about early childhood education. She is a fantastic resource and you can tell that she thrives on learning more and providing an excellent start to school. This school is excellent but not fancy. They have their own songs and a very sweet culture that includes everyone. We love it at Elmwood. - Posted by Parent
