Waldorf based private education, in the East Village

At the New Amsterdam School, we provide an environment that meets the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual needs of young children from birth through primary school, while recognizing each child’s individual spirit.


In September 2014 we opened our first First Grade Class! We are currently accepting grade school, kindergarten and pre-school applications for the 2015-16 and 2016-17 school years and frequently host open houses, tours, sample sessions and lectures for prospective parents.  To keep abreast of our events, please sign up to receive email updates or contact our Admissions Director, Cherish Pratt – cherish.pratt@newamsterdamchildhood.org.
