Urban nature preschool in New York city

Elements Preschool is a nature based preschool kindergarten in the Lower East side, New York City. Every morning, a group of children make their way through the busy streets of New York’s Lower East Side to a nature preschool tucked away on Suffolk Street. Here, they spend their days playing in a delightful, custom-landscaped garden. They engage in activities and lessons that introduce them to the world in a sensory, intuitive manner. They learn how to trust their experiences, and explore their surroundings with curiosity. They create meaningful relationships with their environment and one another.
