About FBA West 85th

Large Outdoor Playground

To increase children’s imagination and sense of wonder, at West 85 we provide a large outdoor play area that will cater to their positive interaction with nature. In this play space, you will find natural materials that will offer children a different sensory experience. Not only will this expand on a child’s relationship with nature but the large space will allow them to build independence as they begin to experiment with safe playing distances away from caretakers.

Spacious Movement Area

Fueling Brains Academy models healthy living and that includes getting daily physical activity. For rainy or cold days, children will be spending some time in the Movement room to stay active. In this room, the class will be guided by a Movement teacher to run our Movement Program. The movement teacher will engage the children in purposeful play to help build on a child’s physical ability, such as gross motor skills, kicking, aiming, balancing, throwing etc.

Distinct Curriculum Rooms

At West 85, there are two distinct classrooms. Our Right Brain room is a Reggio philosophy inspired room which allows children to build and expand on their creativity and imagination. In this room, you will find lots of natural and beautiful materials for children to play with. Our Left Brain room is a Montessori philosophy inspired room. In this room, children will learn grace and courtesy and practical life skills.
