PS 84 follows the DOE curriculum for Pre-K for All. Students have a weekly music class taught by a specialized teacher.
For our youngest students all instruction happens in the Pre-K classroom, which has a bathroom and a sink.
Pre-K classrooms have direct access to a private courtyard and playground that they share with Kindergarten students, and where they spend their recess.
Drop off is at 8:20, and pick up at 2:40.
We believe in the importance of play time and movement.
All students have a 20-25 minute recess daily in addition to their lunch time.
There’s directed outdoor movement with props.
Parents are an integral part of the PS 84 family, and are invited to the classroom every month for a morning period in which they get to see and interact with the children.
The school has a powerful, nurturing community, and a strong PTA. The school also hosts an array of community-building free events for students, families, and teachers.
We believe in the importance of developing skills that—while not measured by tests—round out students’ education and impact their overall success, self-esteem, relationships, as well as civic and community engagement.
