Morningside PlayCare Immersion
Morningside PlayCare Immersion is a 100% Mandarin and Spanish immersion program. The school's distinctive play-based, nature-based, and resiliency-oriented curriculum was inspired by the Hawthorne Valley Waldorf school, Flying Deer Nature Center, and yoga. The emphasis on nature exploration and organic living is a match for families who want their children to be grounded in earth-based values and also prepared to build relationships across cultures. Through a nature and yoga curriculum, students explore and practice such concepts as respect for all living things, appreciating the love in one's life, gratitude for one's food and toys, being mindful, and wondering about everything. Morningside PlayCare Immersion's gardens and outdoor play for toddlers is unmatched in the city.
