New Scheduling Options

We are excited to announce new scheduling options at IPS beginning in September 2022. To serve the changing needs of UES families, we have developed these flexible scheduling options for the school day and school year.

Although we are adopting “daycare” scheduling, please know that IPS will always be a preschool that remains committed to our play-based learning philosophy. During the hours of 9:00am to 3:00pm, for all age groups we will maintain our high level of academics, age, and developmentally appropriate teaching, learning, skill development, and social emotional development. During the hours of 8:00am-9:00am and 3:00pm-6:00pm, children will participate in enrichment and recreational activities. We will be following the typical independent school calendar with a two week, winter break in December and a two week spring break in March.

Please see the schedule and fees below. If you have any questions, please reach out to Martha Smeaton, Director of Admissions, at msmeaton@ipsnyc.org or 212-371-8604 ext. 1112.

Note: The tuition fees below are an estimate and may differ slightly.
