The International Preschools opens a window to the world for young children and their families. IPS offers preschool programs for children ages 2 - 5 and the IPS Playgroup, a non-separation program for children under 2.
The International Preschools (IPS) is a not-for-profit preschool located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
Since our founding in 1963, IPS has strived to provide the best educational experience for young learners while embracing the diversity of our city and world. This purpose sets us apart and has built a special place of belonging. The community created at our school is felt the moment you enter our doors. The diverse makeup of our community creates a home away from home where everyone is welcomed and valued. We celebrate our differences and instill the values to create global citizens.
IPS follows a play-based learning philosophy. Through their play, young children are immersed in their learning. Our teachers facilitate this learning with carefully thought out materials and activities that are developmentally appropriate. Children learn early literacy and early math skills experientially, as well as social-emotional learning. IPS provides a nurturing environment for children to explore and face challenges as they become lifelong learners.
Our teaching staff is highly trained, diverse, and experienced. IPS is a member of the New York State Association of Independent Schools (NYSAIS), the Independent Schools Admissions Association of Greater New York (ISAAGNY) and The Parent’s League. We’re proud that our students regularly score in the highest percentiles in academic testing. Our Director and on-going schools advisor work extensively with families to assure student placement at top public and private schools.
Parents are a vital part of our community, and are encouraged to share their family’s traditions and customs, participate in social events and fundraising activities, and become involved in parent education programs. Welcoming families from New York City and around the world, IPS is truly one of NYC’s largest extended families.
