The Woodward program serves children ages 2 years through 5.

The school year begins in September and finishes at the end of May, generally following the same calendar as New York City Private Schools. Please visit the calendar tab for dates.

Each class and classroom is designed to be age appropriate and to grow with the child following a daily balanced routine of structured activities and free play . Snack, outdoor time and daily student "jobs" are blended into the day's schedule. Students also engage in special activities throughout every week, including music, cooking, and creative movement. The Threes class study science subjects and practices yoga. The Fours/Fives class engage in basic French as well as deeper math and science studies

Every activity is designed to give Woodward children the opportunity to develop skills in social behavior, language, mathematical concepts, early science, and creative arts including music and cooking. Every Woodward student works individually with the classroom head teacher. This gives the teacher an opportunity to customize learning and allows each child to reach curriculum goals and age appropriate milestones.
