Nursery university( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If you thrill to the sight of a preschool teacher bringing an investment banker to his knees, then this film is for you. Following five Manhattan families as they navigate the cutthroat competition for elite nursery school spots for their pampered progeny, this documentary shows that, in New York City at least, exclusivity breeds contentment. There are tears, hysterics and breakdowns-and that's just the parents! There are also seminars, admissions consultants, school visits, interviews, and a year-long preschool applications process--which, as several school officials point out--don't really matter, since the high number of applicants actually forces them to give away spots via lotteries. While the parents may believe these nursery schools are the first step toward Ivy League admittance, the film exposes both the absurdity of the process and genuine parental anxiety for those wanting the best for their kids
