We are so happy you found us!  Catskill Wheelhouse is a cooperative school nestled in the foothills of the Catskill mountains.  Our schoolhouse is a renovated barn on a 200 acre farm in Catskill, NY. Our preschool program for children ages 3-6 opened in the fall of 2015.  Preschool tuition is based on a sliding scale, and we accept DSS subsidies. 

We have since expanded our programming to serve the age range from 5-10-year-olds. We offer summer camps, an after school program, and are launching our program for homeschool families in the fall of 2019.

Our work is to build a place that supports family in all its forms, and where all children feel challenged, capable and irreplaceable. Our days consist of learning through open-ended play and functional tasks such as cooking, building and gardening alongside attentive, caring adults. There is time and space for more focused projects led by the children’s interest and curiosity, and plenty of time for exploring the beautiful land around us. We believe that a child is never too young to be an important member of a community. That they should be valued and listened to. That they should be tasked with work that matters.
