General Info
At Purple Circle, we aim to promote the interdependence of cognitive, emotional, social, and physical development. Children learn about their world through their play. We respect and value children and encourage them as they learn with and about each other, and to grow increasingly independent. These acquired skills are the best preparation for elementary school, and are also a life-long asset.

Purple Circle is a well-established and diverse program for early childhood education on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. The school is over 35 years old and values every family’s active participation and community membership. At Purple Circle, children are given opportunities for direct experience with materials and the environment. Teachers make room to support children’s strengths and a variety of children’s interests. Purple Circle’s teachers are nurturing, warm, and highly experienced. The ratio of teachers to children is outstanding, and its facilities are a real workshop for children’s play and active imagination. Purple Circle’s small size of approximately 60 families allows for an intimate and engaging environment for young children ages 2-6 years.  Children’s conversations, questions and ideas are the basis for curriculum planning. Investigation occurs through a variety of mediums, such as art, music, literature, dance, block building and dramatic play. Purple Circle is non-sectarian and does not discriminate.

Interest areas exist in each classroom for block building, art, reading, water and sand, dramatic play, science, math, etc. The walls of the school are bright with the children's artwork and personal stories.

The large rooftop playground features safe climbing structures, a large gazebo-covered sandbox, tricycles and other games, and, in the summer, sprinklers and water play.
