We received this message this week about a new daycare opening in the neighborhood:
"My name is Kristina and I am writing to let you know about the new daycare we are opening off of Columbia Street. Sitters Studio is an artistic childcare agency that staffs artists as childcare providers. We have been in NYC for 6 years and this past year we opened our first artistic daycare in Brooklyn (off of Smith St.). We received such a positive response that we jumped at the chance to nab a new space on President between Hicks and Columbia.
Our Studio Daycare program used art as the starting point for all developmental learning. Our belief is that, whether it is learning colors with Mondrian, practicing gross motor skills with “The Nutcracker” or understanding math concepts of high/low and more/less with Prokofiev, great art can foster great learning.
The Studio Daycare program is set up to accept children as young as 1.5 years up to 5 years with a preschool program that prepares children for kindergarten. We offer part-time care options of: Monday/Wednesday/Friday or Tuesday/Thursday. Each day, drop off begins at 8AM until 9AM and pick up begins at 4:30PM until 6PM. Included with that are 2 meals and 2 snacks per day all of which are made from organic/natural food products."
