Bank Street Graduate School of Education

Bank Street College of Education is a leader in early childhood education, a pioneer in improving the quality of classroom practice, and a national advocate for children and their families. Since its inception in 1916, Bank Street has been at the forefront of understanding how children learn and grow. From early childhood centers and schools to hospitals and museums, Bank Street has built a national reputation on the simple fact that our graduates know how to do the work that is right for children. At Bank Street, our creative approach to teaching and learning recognizes that children learn best when they are actively engaged with materials, ideas, and people. Learning becomes an active, lifelong endeavor in which children and adults alike engage as careful observers, experimenters, and creative thinkers. The approach recognizes that children do not all learn at the same rate or in the same way—effective teaching and learning demands a range of strategies to meet multiple needs. Through our Graduate School of Education, Children’s Programs, and Bank Street Education Center, we help transform the way teachers and children engage in learning. At Bank Street, you’ll learn with greater depth, and teach with greater impact.
