Osher's early learning is based on an open-ended curriculum, using the child's natural curiosity to direct learning. We are influenced by Montessori, Reggio Emilia, Finland, and the Lubavitcher Rebbe, whose approaches center around the child. Osher believes in holistic education, encouraging a "Renaissance man" curiosity, and considers the following vital to a developing child's nurture:

  • a safe environment
  • acknowledgement
  • respect
  • social-emotional guidance
  • sensory and cognitive stimulation
  • physical exercise
  • regular interaction with nature
  • whole foods
  • spirituality
  • an aesthetically pleasing environment

We are a group of parents in Washington Heights and Hudson Heights who came together to create this space for our children ages 2-5. Osher tradition welcomes parents to add beneficial habits to our school, and to contribute time/talents for our community. Parents and children can expect individualized attention and customized stimulation.
