Separation and Philosophy:

Our philosophy is progressive, child-directed,  and designed specifically for twos to fives.  Children thrive in our messy, choice-based environment within the beautiful, air-conditioned Corlears School.  Kids at Work lead teachers are career teachers, and most are pursuing masters degrees in teaching.  Assistants are hired with extensive age-appropriate experience.  Please, only send your child to camp if they’ve already had experience with separating in a classroom, in a preschool or day care.  We simply cannot provide the attention that separation newbies need whilst providing the dynamic and exciting environment the other children have signed on for!  Kids at Work runs a wonderful gentle separation specifically designed for children undergoing their first separation at our W20th St studio!
