Outdoor Playground Time! Each Day our campers get 25 minutes of outdoor play on the Corlears private playground, INCLUDING sprinkler/water play on Thursdays and Fridays!


Snack and Project - Each day children bring their own snack and create a group project which may be science, art, sensory, or even food prep based!

Playtime & Goodbye! Children end the day with some calm playtime in our classroom, followed by a goodbye ritual.

Separation And Philosophy

Our philosophy is progressive, child-directed, and designed specifically for twos and threes. Children thrive in our messy, choice-based environment within the beautiful, air-conditioned Corlears School.

Kids at Work lead teachers are career teachers.  Our 2023 lead teacher, Sarah Bardin, has a masters degree from Bank Street and has over 20 years of experience. 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. All children must be experienced with separation in a classroom environment before coming to camp. Our staffing does not allow for the adequate comforting of separation newbies. That said, our experienced staff will be prepared for children with a limited amount of jitters! 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 Preschool Prep program specifically designed for children undergoing their first separation, at our W20th St studio!
