One of the hallmarks of a Gaynor education is the multisensory approach used in all subjects.

It has taken on increased relevance after the move to distance learning. “During this time of uncertainty and the feeling of loneliness for many, it is my hope that this video is a reminder that while we are all feeling similar confusion and fear, we have each other to confide in, allowing us to feel a sense of togetherness,” Ms. Curwin said.
Director of Early Childhood Rebecca Jurow and Director of Lower Division Donna Logue share their recommendations for a spring break spent at home.
