Williamsburg to get new 6K sf preschool

October 08, 2013 12:30PM

Williamsburg is set for a new preschool with a gym and outdoor space on the East River waterfront. The 6,000-square-foot New York Kids Club preschool at Northside Piers will have five classrooms and a gym with balance beams, a ring and a 30-foot trampoline.

“We were looking for a long time [in Williamsburg] for the perfect location,” Pam Wolf, founder of New York Kids Club, told DNAinfo. This will be the club’s 10th location in the city.

The school will also look to cultivate gourmet eaters with its “culinary institute” which will employ professional chefs to coach children on how to taste new flavors and how to master table etiquette, Wolf told the website.

Parents of three-year-olds will have to cough up $15,000 per year for the five-day-a-week program, and over 9,000 per semester for the three-day-a-week program. [DNAinfo]  – Hiten Samtani
