My Little Village Preschool will be opening this coming summer at 383 Grand St., a space owned by the Seward Park Cooperative. A lease was signed with the co-op last week.
The school has been located up on Avenue A for the past 15 years. Amy Kraus, My Little Village Preschool’s founder and director, told us in a recent interview that opening day would be July 9. The space was previously occupied by Comprehensive Kids School, so only light renovations are required.
Right now the school serves 28 kids daily. The new location, around 5,000 square feet, will allow the preschool to expand significantly. Kraus said they’ll be able to accommodate up to 75 children, and there will be a new after school program for students ages 6-10.
Kraus said the move allows her team to create the “dream school we always envisioned.” The school will include an art room, library, multi-purpose room for dance and music and indoor and outdoor play spaces.
