The Educational Alliance Preschool
The 14th Street Y is a part of the Educational Alliance, a network of community centers in downtown Manhattan. Our sister school, Educational Alliance Preschool is housed at the Manny Cantor Center. Like the 14th Street Y Preschool, the Educational Alliance Preschool shares the Reggio Emilia Philosophy and Jewish values.
The Educational Alliance Preschool taps the rich neighborhood of the Lower East Side and multiple outreach services of the Manny Cantor Center to engage children in experiences based on nature, acts of kindness, and the arts. They strive to meet the needs of working families seeking fuller and flexible schedules. Enrollment has nearly doubled in two years, and continued growth is expected.
