Cooperative preschool located in NYC's West Village.


Founded in 1969, The Downing Street Playgroup is a cooperative preschool located in NYC's West Village. We provide a warm and supportive environment for 2 to 4-year olds, where learning is enjoyed, valued and becomes a life-long goal. Our preschool is directed by a certified teacher working with an assistant teacher and a rotating parent teacher. Parent participation is an integral part of the success of the Downing Street Playgroup.



We officially begin accepting applications for the following academic year after the first day of school.
