Only in Manhattan

Can three weeks at the wrong preschool cost your child a chance at the Ivy League? One ticked-off woman in New York thinks so.

A Manhattan mom is suing a pricey preschool for dumping her “very smart” 4-year-old with tykes half her age and boring her with lessons about shapes and colors.

In court papers, Nicole Imprescia suggests York Avenue Preschool jeopardized little Lucia’s chances of getting into an elite private school or, one day, the Ivy League.

She’s demanding a refund of the $19,000 tuition and class-action status for other toddlers who weren’t properly prepped for the standardized test that can mean the difference between Dalton and – gasp! – public school.

Hell hath no fury like an angry Tiger Mother.
