Welcome. Thank you for visiting our website. What you will find at Weekday is warmth, joy, excitement, creativity, diversity and an enthusiastic community of learners, where everyone embraces and understands the importance of early childhood.

For nearly nine decades through our strong progressive and play-based mission, our School has nurtured generations of bright, young children to be joyful, active, and engaged learners while encouraging flexible thinking and creative problem solving. Weekday’s strong commitment to community service and social justice sets it apart from other schools in New York City.

Weekday is unquestionably a bright star among the early childhood schools in New York City; it possesses intentionality and direction in the early childhood-centered journey. We support the whole child –  academic, emotional, creative, moral, and physical development.

Community is one of the core values each Weekday family and faculty member embraces, with an emphasis on how kindness and mutual understanding make the world a better place. From learning to respect and value one another in the classroom, to learning about other cultures and experiences, Weekday is an open and diverse school community that believes a strong partnership between home and school is the most effective way to guide children through their first formal educational experience and help to prepare them, and their parents, for the path ahead. Great schools are not just a physical space for a child to grow but a sounding board and support system for the broader community and a true partner to every child’s family.

Children thrive in an environment where they feel safe, secure and are encouraged to be expressive and creative. This combination exists throughout the Weekday School. Weekday believes young children can accomplish great things and has intentionally built a program that is designed to bring out the best in every child. 

We welcome you to visit our school and see firsthand all of the greatness.
