A judge has dismissed a lawsuit against an expensive private Manhattan preschool filed by an irate mother who claimed her 4-year-old child spent too much time learning about "shapes and colors" with younger children and not enough time honing her testing skills to get into a top elementary school.

Nicole Imprescia pulled her daughter out of the $19,000-a-year York Avenue Preschool three weeks after she enrolled and demanded the posh preschool return her money.

At the time, Imprescia claimed the school failed to fulfill its promise to "prepare her daughter for the ERB, an exam required for admission into nearly all the elite private elementary schools."

The school, which enforces a strict no-refund policy, filed a motion to dismiss the case. The judge granted that motion. The decision was publicly released Thursday,

Imprescia did not oppose the decision, according to the paper.
