about us
The Community House School, was founded in 1927. The school is a non-profit, non-sectarian educational organization, licensed by the New York City Department of Health and registered with the New York State Board of Regents. The school has an accredited Kindergarten as well as a variety of preschool programs.

Our School encourages learning through socialization, cooperation and experimentation. Children learn to observe, listen, explore our environment, reach conclusions, communicate with others and achieve independence. The school reinforces the child's self-esteem nd emphasizes attitudes that promote the worth of every individual. Physical development and well-being, social and emotional development and budding intellectual curiosity are seen as interrelated. We value your child as a total being.
Teachers are licensed and certified. The director is certified in Early Childhood Education, holds a Masters, and additional Advanced Degrees/Certificates as well as advanced certifications in Administration and Supervision. All Staff must attend continuing education courses each year. In addition to our classroom staff, we have two"My Gym" gymnastic instructors and an instructor from the Brooklyn - Queens Conservatory of Music.
