Since 1999, Williamsburg Northside has served the dynamic and culturally diverse neighborhood of Williamsburg and surrounding communities in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens. Founded as a progressive preschool by a small group of entrepreneurial educators, the school has grown over the past two decades to two age-appropriate campuses that serve nearly 350 students from Preschool through Grade 8.


All children are strong, capable individuals. Guided by this understanding, we at Williamsburg Northside welcome families into beautiful and flexible environments where children engage in independent and collaborative investigations. Our teaching community builds a unique curriculum from the children’s interests, their experiences with one another and the world in which they live. We honor authentic expression and diversity as we cultivate compassionate citizens who find joy in learning.
