Another email from clients whose child will be attending a top NYC private school kindergarten:
We’ve been busy writing thank you notes to all those who wrote letters and made calls on (child's) behalf and we now have the most important note to write, and that is to you. We absolutely would not be here if it wasn’t for you and will be forever grateful for having your guidance.
We cannot believe (child) will be at (top NYC private school) next fall and have not stopped jumping up and down with excitement since we heard. We did it!!
We truly feel blessed to have been able to work with you through the process. We could not have felt more prepped for our parent interview, your advice on when and how to send letters was spot on and your support through the entire process was priceless. You knew exactly what to say to us when we were feeling anxious and gave us the confidence we needed to successfully get through the admissions process.
You are amazing at what you do and you will forever hold a special place in our lives. Sending (child) to (top NYC private school) is our dream and the best gift we could give her. Thank you, Emily, from the bottom of our hearts.
Lovely email today from clients whose child will be attending a top Manhattan kindergarten:
Thank you so much for all of your thoughtful advice and guidance over the past year. Despite the difficult decision of where to actually enroll <child's name>, we could not be happier with the outcome and we were especially thrilled to receive positive feedback from multiple schools, all of which would have been excellent choices. We look forward to working with you again when we approach this process for <younger child>.

With all the new New York City private schools opening, it is not surprising that shortly after, some new New York City private schools are already closing. Manhattan is a tough market, and not every private school can make it.
The Rocket Group, an education group that purchased the Mandell School in 2013, closed it only three years later, announcing that 2016-2017 would be the school's last year in operation for K-8.
Now another casualty. The New York International School, chartered by the British Schools Foundation, lasted just two years after moving into Trevor Day School's old elementary school building, part of the Episcopal Church of the Heavenly Rest, on East 90th Street.
The British Schools Foundation runs about 10 schools around the world, as well as the New York International School. The NYIS offers a US curriculum from a global perspective, and a dual language program in Spanish or Mandarin. According to Wikipedia, the New York International School will be closed "due to the failure of the Board of Directors", after only two school years.
I feel sorry for all these families needing new private schools ASAP! That is the problem with enrolling in new schools. Some percentage of them will fail. As an educational consultant, I make it my business to advise my clients on which new schools seem most stable and likely to succeed.
Abacus Mom received this news today from Trevor Day School, which is adding a nursery school:
I am writing to announce the reestablishment of Trevor’s Nursery program, effective for the 2017-2018 school year. We are currently enrolling students for fall 2017 and will appreciate your keeping Trevor in mind for this entry point as you support families through their school search.
As many of you may remember, a Trevor Nursery program is a return to our roots. We started as a Nursery program in 1930 and only moved away from offering this grade level three years ago. Our recently completed strategic plan led us back to this important foundational program and I am thrilled to be able to offer a Trevor education to even more families.
Available to children ages 2.8 through 3, the Nursery program is an engaging first step within a school setting, and into a Trevor education. In nurturing spaces, and guided by two stellar teachers, students will develop fine and gross motor skills, socialize, master language development, and tackle the many exciting building blocks of learning. Enriching experiences taught by Trevor specialist teachers in art, music, physical education, and Spanish are also a part of every Nursery school week, as are trips to Central Park.
