Willkommen, Bienvenido, Welcome
Pusteblume International Preschool provides children with a fun and community-oriented multicultural environment where instruction in the German and Spanish language serves as a catalyst for the development of each child’s unique cultural identity.
Our licensed, native-speaking, early childhood educators focus on providing quality instruction in a warm and nurturing setting that cultivates the growth and development of your child. Music, movement, literacy, and visual arts are an integral part of the preschool curriculum.
To our preschool program we welcome families with children from 2 to 5 years of age of all international backgrounds who are interested in having their child learn either German or Spanish, or BOTH as a second language.
For our afterschool programs and holiday camps we also offer activities for school-age children from 6 to 12 years of age! Language support is so important once your child has entered the American school system. Pusteblume has fun, individually-tailored programs and activities to help acquire and improve language, reading and writing skills and is a perfect way to keep your child in touch with or re-introduce them to the German or Spanish language when they speak mostly English in school…
Pusteblume International Preschool is directed by Friends of the German International School of New York, Inc., a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation.
Osterbasteln – Easter Arts & Crafts
This event has become another wonderful Pusteblume tradition. Join us on Saturday, March 28th anytime from 1PM to 4PM to craft easter decorations with your children.
Pusteblume is offering a spring break camp for ages 2 to 12. We will have fun activities all around Spring to chase the winter blues away. All age groups have limited spaces so don’t miss out and register today.
When the weather is not cooperating, come in and enjoy 2 hours of family fun with your children ages 0 to 12 in Pusteblume’s great indoor play space. Playdates are in GERMAN and SPANISH.
Kids! Come play in one of the designated classrooms, color or craft, tumble and dance in our gross motor room and watch a Sendung mit der Maus or fun Spanish show when you need a rest.
Parents! Spend some quality time with your children in a fun environment with different toys and books. Afterwards explore the neighborhood with a stroll on the Highline and lunch at many of the fabulous area restaurants or Chelsea Market (good shopping there, too).
Best of all… meet other families that speak German and Spanish!
Time: 10AM – 12PM
Donation: $20 per child | $15 per sibling
