Bienvenido a
SUEÑO Pre-K de East Harlem

At DREAM East Harlem Pre-K, everything we do is guided by our Whole Child model: the belief that every child needs and deserves not only rigorous academic instruction, but also social-emotional support, physical health and wellness, and the strength of a community behind them. When children are known, seen, and loved, that’s when they have the space to grow into the leaders, innovators, and changemakers of tomorrow.

voices from our community

“Recently, Logan and Royal of the Little Giants arrived at school with their moms at the same time. Logan was ready to run in the door, but then noticed that Royal was a little more reluctant to leave his mom. Logan immediately reached out his hand; Royal gladly took it and they walked into school together, hand-in-hand. This small act of compassion from our youngest learners speaks to the bonds students have built in their classroom communities.”

- Christine Wicks, Former Principal

el lugar importa

At DREAM, we believe that every child deserves a beautiful space to play, learn, and grow. East Harlem Pre-K is located at 433 East 100th Street. Classrooms feature reading nooks, sensory learning stations, spaces for small group play, and more.

Like all of our schools, EHPK is embedded in its community; it’s only a few blocks away from our Field of Dreams, and when our preschoolers step up to kindergarten, they move to our state-of-the-art location at 1991 2nd Ave.

nuestro plan de estudios

DREAM East Harlem Pre-K has two teachers per classroom and is the first preschool in New York City to use the Every Child Ready curriculum, which balances independent, play-based learning with whole and small group instruction. It includes strategies for English Language Learners and low-language students who need extra support. Every scholar receives daily one-on-one instruction in both reading and math.

At the end of the year, Pre-K scholars are academically, socially, and emotionally prepared to succeed in kindergarten and elementary school.

EHPK scholars build social-emotional skills like:

  • Communication with peers and adults
  • Understanding emotions
  • Establishing and keeping routines
  • Peer conflict resolution

Después de la escuela gratis y Programación de verano

Every DREAM student is guaranteed a spot in our free afterschool and summer programming. That's because we believe that an extended-day, extended-year model is key to nurturing scholars' whole selves, keeping students engaged all day long and all year long through a mix of academic support, social-emotional learning programming, sports-based programming, and enrichment activities like field trips.

Una vez que su hijo esté inscrito para el otoño, puede comenzar su viaje DREAM ese verano; todos los estudiantes entrantes tienen garantizado un lugar en nuestra programación de verano.

Preguntas frecuentes

¿Que es una escuela autónoma?
Las escuelas chárter son escuelas públicas, gratuitas y abiertas a todos, que tienen la autonomía y la libertad de diseñar aulas que satisfagan las necesidades de todos los estudiantes. Cada red de escuelas chárter tiene sus propios principios y prácticas, que pueden generar diferentes resultados para los estudiantes y las familias. En DREAM Charter Schools, todos los maestros están certificados por el estado de Nueva York y estamos comprometidos con un modelo que da la bienvenida a todos los niños y atiende todas sus necesidades: académicas, socioemocionales y físicas.

All our classrooms are have an integrated co-teaching model (with two teachers in every classroom) as well as onsite counseling, speech language therapy, physical therapy, hearing support services, occupational therapy, and paraprofessional services. 100% of IEP services are provided in person.

¿Ofrecen servicios para estudiantes de inglés? Si es así, ¿qué servicios se ofrecen?
DREAM ofrece dos modelos para la enseñanza de estudiantes del idioma inglés, según las necesidades del estudiante. En el Modelo Independiente, los ELL/MLL se sacan del salón de clases regular durante un bloque del día para recibir apoyo lingüístico a través de un plan de estudios ELL designado. Las lecciones enfatizan el desarrollo de habilidades para hablar, escuchar, leer y escribir para mejorar el lenguaje académico y social y acelerar el progreso en el salón de clases básico. En el modelo de Co-Enseñanza Integrada, el maestro ELL/MLL ingresa al salón de clases regular y trabaja con el maestro del área de contenido para brindar apoyo lingüístico adicional a los ELL/MLL. Es una colaboración entre el maestro de educación general o de contenido y el maestro de inglés como nuevo idioma.
