Established in 1957, Lissie's Katonah Playschool is a private, nonsectarian early childhood center, operating on the premises of the First Presbyterian Church of Katonah, New York. Our programs include preschool classes for 2 – 5 year old children, Afternoon Pre-K Enrichment, and Before-and After-School Care for School age children. Children of all races, colors, creeds and abilities are welcome at Katonah Playschool.


Lissie's Katonah Playschool provides an educational experience that promotes a healthy, happy atmosphere, where children are encouraged to develop social-emotional, language, cognitive, fine and gross motor, and self-help skills.

There are a number of variables which contribute to a rich, educational experience for young children.

  • Development of a good self-image and self-confidence
  • Bonding with the teachers provides a safe environment
  • Manipulation, exploration, and discovery of developmentally appropriate experiences
  • Relating to others in a cooperative and accepting atmosphere
  • Print-rich environment using labels, big books, and experience charts provide opportunities for the children to learn about books and writing
