Welcome Spring! What’s Ahead at The International Preschools

Spring means…more time playing outside!

After a restful and relaxing spring break, the students and teachers are back at The International Preschools for the final stretch of the 2020-2021 school year!

Spring means…learning about topics such as birds and nests!

In the classrooms, spring will bring about a variety of new topics: gardening, planting, recycling, trees, birds, insects, and more! We will spend time learning about Earth Day, and why it is so important to take care of the planet that we live on.

Spring means…learning about the parts of a flower, and creating representational flower paintings using a “live” model!

Our Parents’ Association is hard at work in putting together our annual Spring Benefit, which will take place virtually on Wednesday, April 28th. An online auction will include contributions from each classroom from both locations. One of the many items to bid on or buy include an “Almost Sleepover,” where a few lucky guests will join their teachers in wearing pajamas, making a craft, watching a movie, and enjoying a meal right here at IPS!

Happy Spring to all!

Every spring, The International Preschools hosts a Spring Benefit here in New York City. Faculty, administration, current and former IPS parents, and friends gather to support our school in a variety of ways.

Each year, the benefit has a special theme, usually with a multicultural motif.  Cuisine, clothing, and music at the event represent the chosen theme (much like the teachers facilitate with each month’s classroom subjects!). During the first part of the evening, the IPS community enjoys great food and drink and mingle with each other.
