Tuition assistance is available and we encourage you to speak with our admissions team.

PreK 3 & PreK 4
Application Process

We welcome your interest in Léman Manhattan Preparatory School's PreK 3 and PreK 4 program. The Center for Early Childhood Education at Léman is housed on two newly-renovated, dedicated floors of our Broad Street Campus. Through our play-based program and hands-on learning experiences, children ignite their curiosity and build a sense of belonging during the most influential time in their development. In addition to the STEAM WonderLab, library and swim, our students receive Spanish or Mandarin instruction from native speakers four times a week.

Applicants must be 3 or 4 years old by September 1 of the school year for which they are applying. Please contact a member of the admissions team with any questions. The application for 2021-22 is now open.
