Williamsburg, Brooklyn is an urban environment, a few subway stops from downtown Brooklyn, Long Island City, and Manhattan. It is an ever-evolving, vibrant neighborhood that attracts artists and entrepreneurs from around the world. Williamsburg Northside was founded as a progressive preschool by a group of passionate educators in 1999. Since then, we have been a fixture of this culturally dynamic and diverse community. Each phase of our evolution has been the result of the strong desire of the community for it to expand. We opened our Infant & Toddler Center in 2008 and our Lower School soon followed in 2009. In September 2014, the Lower School moved into a spacious and beautiful facility. Today, we have 3 age-appropriate campuses that serve nearly 400 students from infancy through 5th Grade.
In September of 2018, we will begin a new and exciting chapter with the launch of our inaugural 6th grade class and our Middle School.
Our core values are:
We value differences in people, care about the feelings of others, and consider diverse perspectives.
We recognize, understand, and take pride in our own identity.
We are able to take risks, cope with disappointment, and persevere through challenges.
We exchange ideas and work together to achieve common goals.
We recognize and understand our impact on others, demonstrate accountability for our actions, and work to create positive change.
