11 Beautiful Acres on Manhattan's Upper West Side:

Photo of Preschool / Day Care in Manhattan, NYCThe ACT Program is one of the few programs within the five boroughs that can boast of its spacious grounds, a year round program, extended hours and services for a wide range of age groups. In the summer, there's no need to bus your child away from home in order to be out in the sun, around trees and flowers. Our 11-acre oasis in Manhattan allows children to garden, play in fields, meet outdoors, eat under the shade of cherry trees, play in gymnasiums and use crafts rooms. Peacocks and squirrels roam our unique setting.

ACT is located on the grounds of the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine in the Morningside Heights neighborhood on Manhattan's Upper West Side. It is bounded on the East by Morningside Drive, on the West by Amsterdam Avenue, on the South by Cathedral Parkway (West 110th Street) and on the North by West 113th Street.

Public Transportation:
ACT is a block or two from two subway stops. The 1 train stop at Cathedral Parkway (West 110th Street) and Broadway. The B and C train stop is at Cathedral Parkway (West 110th Street) and Central Park West. Bus stops are even closer. The M11 and M4 Buses stop on the corner of 110th Street and Amsterdam Avenue.
