Welcome to Open Arms Preschool: Where your child can play, explore, and create! We believe that play is a child’s vehicle for learning. Each child is an individual growing at his own rate of readiness and ability. Developing self-esteem, learning to communicate, to share and to socialize within one’s own peer group are our basic goals. Learn more.

We are conveniently located in East Midtown near the Manhattan neighborhoods of Gramercy Park, Union Square, Peter Cooper Village, Stuyvesant Town, Kips Bay, and Murray Hill.

Open Arms Preschool is rated one of the top 14 Preschool in NYC!

What the parents say!


"My husband and I decided to check out Open Arms because we lived in the neighborhood and read very positive reviews.  After meeting Misa, the teachers and visiting the school, our decision was made.

Before attending Open Arms she was very shy, and introverted and after attending Open Arms her first year @ age 3, we saw a major shift in her personality. She became more outgoing and really loved Open Arms, she looked forward to going daily. She made friends easily and talked about her days when she got home.  She adored Miss Vicky and Miss Isabel as well as all the teachers. 

We have been blessed to have her attend Open Arms and only wish it can continue through her elementary school years. My husband and I would highly recommend Open Arms for your child. We had such a positive experience and Devon is very sad she will not be returning next year,  as she is off to Kindergarten. 

We want to sincerely thank the Open Arms staff for making her experience in preschool a very positive one (and ours)."
