Typical Day

Just another fun-filled day at the Schoolhouse!

PSS offers a full-year (September through August), full-day (7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.) program and the option of two (T/TH), three (MWF) and five (M-F) day a week options.

In addition to our busy classroom curriculum, we have partnered with Bilingual Birdies for a weekly Spanish program  taught through music, yoga and Super Soccer Stars once a week, to all of our age groups, and Creative Movement for the 2 and 3 year olds with the Park Slope Performing Arts.
