Booker T. Washington Preschool

“Pre-K for All is a program​ provided by the NYC Department of Education to provide free, full-day, high-quality education to all 3 and 4 year old's living in New York City.

Food Matters

We offer a healthy breakfast and lunch as well as a mid-morning and afternoon snack. We also try to teach children to make healthy food choices and learn how to grow and prepare food that is both nutritious and delicious.    



Every lesson begins with the idea that children possess knowledge.  They only need a rich environment, the right prompting, and a bit of encouragement to explore, observe, and discover the world around them.  


Children will learn about themselves as they discover the world around them.  Children will thrive if they are excited, encouraged and nurtured.  They will love learning if they are taught to think creatively, strategically, and critically about the world around them.  

Play is a child's work

We believe that play is a child's work, so while there is structure and intention in every lesson, there is also a commitment to allowing children to lead themselves, their peers, and the staff through their playful experiences. To accomplish this, our teachers take an eclectic approach to lesson planning and building our curriculum around the children.
