It was a wonderful combination of nurturing, challenging and learning

Our daughter, who’s now 13, had an amazing start at the Red Balloon. It was a wonderful combination of nurturing and challenging. I’ll never forget how she, at age 2, was expected to bus her own dishes after breakfast – and she did it! She was given responsibilities and she proudly followed through. Red Balloon was an exciting and fun place to learn, with outstanding teachers. It was also a terrific community. Our daughter is still friendly with some of her Red Balloon friends and we with their parents, 10 years later.

Dalia went to PS 165 in the Dual Language G&T program for K and 1st, then transferred to CPE1 for the rest of elementary school. She was at the Queens Paideia School for middle school and will be attending Harvest Collegiate High School in the fall.
