About Léman

Broad Street Campus

41 Broad Street, just steps from the New York Stock Exchange, houses our Center for Early Childhood Education and Lower School. For many decades after its construction in 1928, a series of banks were the tenants of this 13-story neo-classical building. In 2003, the facility was converted into an ideal learning environment for young children, with many of its grand architectural details maintained.

The Broad Street campus is home to nearly 300 students from ages 16 months to grade 5. Our newly-renovated Center for Early Childhood Education comprises two dedicated floors of the building, specifically designed for the learning needs of our youngest students. All Broad Street campus students benefit from unrivaled resources to support their interdisciplinary, inquiry-based learning, including science labs, art studios, music rooms, and a swimming pool.
