A Place to Shine

Explore.  Discover.  Listen.  Learn.  Laugh.

Founded in 1986, recipient of a prestigious Blackboard award, Poppyseed Pre-Nursery is the Upper West Side’s premier boutique 'Grown-Up & Me' arts and enrichment program. Babies, toddlers, 2’s & 3’s come with Mommy, Daddy, Grandma, Grandpa or Nanny to enjoy a magical experience. Choo-choo with our Brio trains, cruise around in our mini-cars, slice the pizza in our pretend kitchen, play the piano, read books, master our puzzles, ching-ching our cash register or stroll around with a puppy-pull toy. 


 At Poppyseed, we believe in providing the perfect bridge between home and the future nursery school experience. We base our philosophy on fostering a nurturing, relaxed environment, specifically designed to encourage self-expression, confidence, and creativity. Individualized attention from our adored teachers, consistent playgroups where friends for life are made, and a sense of family with the warmth of a home—make Poppyseed the authentic experience for which it has been loved for years.


Come sing a song or two, paint a picture from your mind's eye, dance to your heart's delight, jump in the gym and make a new friend--welcome to our family.
