What’s Special

Beautiful building

The Downside

Difficult commute for people outside neighborhood

Housed at PS 51, this pre-kindergarten center has a lovely new building with well-equipped classrooms and room to spare.

Not officially part of PS 51, the pre-k center was set up to offer seats to children whose zoned neighborhood schools don’t have space for pre-kindergarten. In its first year of operation, in 2015-16, only two of the five classrooms were operating because of low demand, possibly a result of the out-of-the-way location west of 10th Avenue.
