Preschool Place is specially designed to meet the developmental needs of children ages birth to 6 years old. In order to ensure our youngest learners have a safe and comfortable environment to explore, admission into Preschool Place is limited to children ages 6 and under. We recommend that you visit with a second adult to accompany any children over the age of 6. Be sure to ask about exhibits appropriate for children of all ages.

Preschool Place closes 75 minutes prior to NYSCI’s closing time. Preschool Place is designed for families; groups are not permitted.

Sing-alongs, story times and art activities are featured during weekends and holidays.

*Preschool and Family Programs at NYSCI are supported by the Altman Foundation, the Citi Foundation, the Liu Foundation, and the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
