Purple Circle is a well-established and diverse program for early childhood education on ManhattanÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Upper West Side. The school is over 35 years old and values every familyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢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 childrenÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s strengths and a variety of childrenÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s interests. Purple CircleÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s teachers are nurturing, warm, and highly experienced. The ratio of teachers to children is outstanding, and its facilities are a real workshop for childrenÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s play and active imagination. Purple CircleÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s small size of approximately 60 families allows for an intimate and engaging environment for young children ages 2-6 years. ChildrenÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢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.
Purple Circle has sunny and spacious classrooms that are rich in materials, designed to encourage exploration and support all types of learning. 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.
