International Preschools Celebrate 50th Year
The International Preschools, which began in 1963, marked its 50th anniversary this year with the June 20 opening of a third location, at 345 E. 86th St. The school was founded to serve the needs of international families, connected to the United Nations. Since then, it has welcomed a diverse mix of both American and international families. The other two locations are at 330 E. 45th St. and 120 W. 76th St. Each location benefits from the character and resources of its surrounding community while maintaining a consistent curriculum and dedication to the schools' core principles.
The location at 345 E. 86th St. will open with a summer camp from July 8 to July 25 that includes art, sand and water play, movement, cooking, and storytelling. Older children will participate in sports, instructional swim, science, on-site performances, and local field trips.
A 50th anniversary extravaganza is scheduled for May 1, 2014 at the United Nations.
