How does the school help to transition my child to kindergarten?

Q: How does the school help to transition my child to kindergarten?

A:

Finding and applying to the right school can be a daunting task for New York City families. When it's time to think about the next step beyond Barrow Street, our directors support and guide families through this process, known as exmissions.

We begin by inviting parents to a serious of workshops to educate them about both the private and public school options in the city. 

In the classroom, teachers focus on observing and documenting your child using words and photographs to reflect on their learning experiences. This process helps us articulate our thinking about your child's ongoing investigations and provides a direction for helping us to determine which schools might be a match for them. 

Parents meet with directors as the process of applying to schools unfolds and our directors provide guidance on how to prepare both parents and children on what to expect throughout the process. We are committed to providing the support and guidance needed during this process. 

Our families end up at a large variety of schools, all over Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx. Please click here to see a Kindergarten school list for the past two years.
