In mid-May, The International Preschools celebrated the traditional Mother’s Day holiday. While our 76th Street location honored mothers in a few different ways, the 86th Street location chose to commemorate “Parents Day” with the children and their families.

May 5th marked National Teacher Appreciation Day. Here at The International Preschools, we like to think that are teachers are appreciated every day! The fabulous IPS Parents Association, in honor of the immense amount of work that our teachers are preparing and executing every day via our Zoom sessions, decided to present the faculty by coordinating a special surprise…
The International Preschools celebrated Earth Day on Wednesday, April 22nd. Though we are weeks into our remote learning experience, the children were able to immerse themselves in the importance of reducing, reusing, and recycling…and taking care of the Earth…with the help of their amazing teachers!
New York City has been social distancing due to COVID-19 for several weeks now. The International Preschools has been closed since the week of March 16th. While we are constantly reminded that we are “not alone” throughout this process, the weight of being isolated from our peers has undoubtedly taken a toll on all of us. We could all use a little brightening of the spirits!
Enter IPS Spirit Day, which will take place on Friday, April 24th! On this day, The International Preschools’ students and families are invited to wear/display IPS gear (hats, tee shirts, aprons, sweatshirts, backpacks). Any IPS apparel or item will do, as it will show your support of our school! You can even make your own signs to display. Alumni are invited to participate as well.
Because we can’t all be together in person, parents are asked to take photos of their children with/wearing their IPS items and post them on Instagram! Tag the photo(s) with @international_preschools_nyc or email them to Nikki Rosso at email@example.com so that she can post them on our Instagram page.

Upon entering the classrooms, one might feel as if they are actually visiting a “brick and mortar” version of what you’d find at the 76th Street and 86th Street locations.

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, our play-based learning environment has taken on a new look. After a two-week spring break, The International Preschools reopened on Monday, March 30th…online! Every day, our Red (2s), Green (3s), Pre-K (4s), and Junior K (4s/5s) Rooms are logging into their technical devices and bringing the IPS curriculum into our (currently socially distant) homes.
