Ivy Bound Test Prep wants to send students away. To top-ranked schools, that is. During prep sessions, tutors help students identify and conquer academic issues, prepare for the rigors of upper education, and raise SAT and entrance-exam scores before they apply to Hunter high schools and top universities. By the end of the program, students often leave with exam scores boosted by up to 600 points and a better understanding of what major universities look for from an applicant. And if anyone knows what top-tier high schools and universities look for, it’s Ivy Bound's tutors; all of its instructors are licensed high-school teachers or college professors, with some hailing from Ivy League universities such as Harvard and Yale.

At The Little Green Tambourine, an environmentally friendly creative-arts studio that promotes active lifestyles, children’s imaginations roam freely during unstructured open-play hours. Kids can create artwork from play doh and paint, don dress-up clothes, or spout The Catcher in the Rye soliloquies during dramatic play. The mini ball pit and hula hoops promise to burn off excess energy, and youngsters can train for the import-export business at the train table. During open play parents must remain with their children, but for an additional $5 per session parents may leave their children to be supervised by the staff during drop-off open play. Parents supervise little ones younger than age 3, but can drop off children 3–5 years old in the sunlit studio with sustainable bamboo floors. Registration for drop-off play is required, and reservations for open play are recommended.
