On Saturday, June 8, Corlears School celebrated its 50th birthday with a classic backyard party. More than 60 alumni, founding families, staff, and parents gathered at the independent school to reconnect and reminisce in honor of the momentous anniversary year. The Chelsea school, which began in 1968 as a nursery school on the Lower East Side, prides itself on being a neighborhood school for the entire city, building a strong academic foundation for young learners ages 2-10 in an inclusive, vibrant community.

“Corlears’ community has a history of educating young children to be critical thinkers and compassionate leaders — a vision established by our founding families and educators in 1968 and championed by our teachers, staff, students, and parents today,” said David Egolf, Head of School. “We are honored to celebrate this milestone year for the school and make even more memories with our biggest friends and supporters from the past and present.”
