Greenwich House was founded in 1902. It’s more than a day care center or nursery school. It’s a center for the entire family with programs to meet the needs of people of all ages. The music program, for instance, offers group courses for children, adults, and private instruction.
Ceramics instruction is a big part of the offerings at Greenwich House. They have a full pottery program, but the arts and after school program also emphasizes ceramic art. This includes an after school program and a summer camp.
The Barrow Street Nursery School is a progressive child-centered day care. The curriculum is based on social learning philosophies and incorporates Reggio Emilia with a view toward teaching respect and responsibility within the context of community.
The Children’s Safety Project deals with the after effects of domestic violence, sexual abuse, and violent crime.
Greenwich House has earned respect from a diverse set of community members who realize the organization has helped thousands of New Yorkers from early childhood to senior citizens. They continue to help people year after year, not only in dealing with difficult situations but with teaching early students to respect knowledge and become lifelong learners.
