We have been on Dutch Street, in the heart of the Financial District, for 24 years. We remain committed to our belief in the enduring value of play, and we know that the most meaningful learning takes place when children can feel secure and independent in an environment designed just for them. 

We hope you'll explore this site and get  a glimpse of our overall program, our teachers, our roof and Big Room, our monthly newsletters, and more-- but to truly know what makes Downtown Little School unique, please come and see it for yourselves!
