Elements Pre-K Nature Preschool Offers A Dynamic Environment For Children to Play, Explore, Experience, Create, Learn & Grow

About Elements Pre K

Elements pre-k is a nature based preschool in the Lower East side, New York City. Every morning, a group of children make their way through the busy streets of New York’s Lower East Side to a preschool tucked away on Suffolk Street. Here, they spend their days playing in a delightful, custom-landscaped garden. They engage in activities and lessons that introduce them to the world in a sensory, intuitive manner.

They learn how to trust their experiences, and explore their surroundings with curiosity. They create meaningful relationships with their environment and one another. At Elements pre-k, learning is rooted in everyday magic.
