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.
