In partnership with our friends at apple seeds, we’re giving away five copies of the new fourth edition of Clara Hemphill’s New York City’s Best Public Pre-K and Elementary Schools: A Parents’ Guide.
Hemphill is the founder of InsideSchools.org, which helps city parents make educated decisions about public school by providing incisive and balanced reviews of schools (written by trained InsideSchools reporters), and lots of other reliable news, resources, and information about local schools and their admissions procedures. Out of the work on the website, grew Hemphill’s series of Best Schools guides for grade school through high school.
The last time the Grade School edition was published was 10 years ago. A lot has changed since then including, Universal Pre-K, the expansion of charter schools, and an expanding number of public schools that middle class parents are willing to consider. The new edition (the 4th) was co-written with Lydie Raschaka, and others on the InsideSchools team, including Pamela Wheaton, and Laura Zingmod.
About apple seeds: apple seeds is an all-in-one play space for families with children ages newborn to 5 years. Their flagship location is in the Chelsea/Flatiron neighborhood, and they have a location on the UWS and in Peter Cooper Village/Stuyvesant Town, as well. Both locations feature a state-of-the-art indoor playground with museum-quality exhibits, more than 100 different children’s classes per week, unique birthday parties, and an award-winning day camp. Additionally, to plant the seeds of their unique offerings in more communities locally and nationally, apple seeds introduced a franchise program for their most popular music class (songs for seeds) a little over a year ago. The songs for seeds franchise program allows apple seeds to bring their mission of community, play, and learning to more families than ever. To learn more about apple seeds, visit appleseedsplay.com!
