Education Redefined is at the core of our PreK–grade 12 program. The BASIS Independent Early Learning Program is focused on elevating the early learning experience for our youngest minds.
BASIS Independent Schools believe creating a love for learning as early as possible for a child leads to future academic and lifelong success. The Early Learning Program at BASIS Independent Manhattan serves four-year-olds. Our PreK is a developmentally appropriate and best practices program—and we believe that early learning should be expertly led by thoughtful, nurturing, creative, and passionate teachers. Our educators create a learning environment where learning is a joyful and rewarding experience that maintains the integrity of each child’s imagination and natural curiosity. The environment fosters an exposure to a thematic, hands-on, comprehensive, and content-rich curriculum. We call this vibrant curriculum our Discovery Blocks of Learning. It creates a blueprint for children to not only transition with ease to kindergarten, but also to become enthusiastic lifelong learners. The Early Learning Program also prepares students for the scenario-based, Connections learning that occurs in the primary grades. Ultimately, the goal of the program is to foster a sense of wonder while engaging in the world that surrounds us, equipping students with a foundation for future success.
