Adults and Children in Trust (A.C.T.), located on the 11-acre oasis of the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine campus, is a nonsectarian education center that provides year-round educational and recreational programs for infants, children and teens from 6 months to 17 years old. Preschool classes are limited to 12-15 children with a 1:5 child-teacher ratio. This allows freedom and flexibility to respond to individual needs and interests, and additionally, to nurture the creation of strong bonds and strong beginnings. Creative activities encourage pre-reading and early math skills, self-expression and an insightful, confident sense of self. The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine's eleven idyllic acres provide a natural outlet for your child's curiosity and desire to explore. With an emphasis on plant and animal life, children study squirrels and peacocks living on the grounds, leaf samples, worms and classroom animals. As a precursor to ACTís Preschool program, First Step Nursery offers morning and afternoon sessions for youngsters 2-4 years old. Children discover independence, learning to separate from parents and begin working with peers in small groups through hands-on, teacher-led activities. Afternoon classes focus on cognitive development in the area of science, math and music; choose from the following specialties: Spanish Language Art Class, Music and Movement, Animal and Earth Science, Games 101 and Games 102. Come for two, three, or all five days.
