From New Amsterdam School

New Amsterdam grows strong, loving, spirited human beings who know who they are and love what they do. We provide a full Early Childhood program and Elementary School at our warm, home-like East Village campus. Our community embraces diversity, fosters inclusivity, and honors the uniqueness of each child.

Our modern, innovative Waldorf curriculum inspires reverence for the natural world, for one's self, and for others, while developing foundational practical, social, and cognitive skills. Early Childhood students thrive in self-directed play, creative arts, and abundant time in nature, freely exploring the world around them while developing the skills for future social and academic success.

Our multi-disciplinary Elementary School integrates hands-on experiences such as gardening, woodworking, and cooking with rigorous academics, awakening children's innate intelligence, developing solid social-emotional skills, and empowering them to create a future only they can imagine.
