"Is it not cruel to let our city die by degrees, stripped of all her proud monuments, until there will be nothing left of all her history and beauty to inspire our children? If they are not inspired by the past of our city, where will they find the strength to fight for her future?" Jacqueline Kennedy

Smith Street Workshop Building On Its Success In Carroll Gardens, Will Soon Open French Immersion Pre-School On Henry Street

Since opening its doors at 581 Henry Street in 2015, Smith Street Workshop has grown dramatically in Carroll Gardens, becoming a comprehensive educational center, which provides the community with academic enrichment for pre-kindergarteners to high school students.
Recently, Smith Street Workshop has expanded into a beautiful second space at 339 Smith Street and is currently putting the finishing touches on a large space at 607 Henry Street for the brand new Smith Street Maternelle, a French immersion pre-school program, which is now accepting  applications for 2018-2019.

The expansion into the new spaces allows Smith Street Workshop to provide additional French language classes for children and adults, as well as immersion music and art classes for pre-schoolers. It also allows the Workshop to support students through individual tutoring across all academic subjects.  In addition, it offers SAT, ACT, Specialized High School and Common Core test prep classes.

Smith Street Workshop's founder and Director, Olivia Ramsey, was one of the founding teachers at Public School 58's French Dual Language Program. For five years, she taught kindergarten and 3rd grade at the school, before starting a small private tutoring practice out of her Smith Street apartment in 2013.  The practice was so successful that Olivia soon had a long waiting list, prompting her to open the space at 581 Henry Street.

Smith Street Workshop is an invaluable resource for students and parents in this neighborhood, so please help spread the word. Learn more about the french classes and tutoring programs at www.smithstreetworkshop.com.

The extraordinary team at SSW has encouraged so many little minds to reach higher and will continue to inspire so many in years to come. Congratulations to Olivia, who has accomplished so much.
