School’s out for the Comprehensive Kids Development School on Delancey Street. The school had occupied the base of the Blue condo building since 2012, but was booted last month.

City Marshals paid a visit and seized the enormous space. The token sign is affixed to the Norfolk Street entrance.

Earlier this week, a cherry picker helped remove the illuminated branding from the facade of 130 Delancey. And install the requisite leasing sign courtesy of the Sinvin brokerage, but nothing online just yet.

Local businessman Nathan Sklar founded the Comprehensive Kids School back in 2007 as a non-profit early childhood program specializing in special education for developmentally delayed youngsters between the ages of 3 to 5 years. Its original headquarters was in Seward Park at 383-387 Grand Street. The expansion to Blue at 101 Nofolk happened five years later.

Sklar was also behind the failed attempt in 2014 to launch Kosher Cafe in the former Shalom Chai pizza space.

Carter Management Corp. acquired the property in late 2012 for $21 million, according to public record.
