    Brooklyn Schoolhouse
    An independent preschool in Clinton Hill

    Brooklyn Schoolhouse is founded on the conviction that children have an innate desire to explore, play, and learn. We believe children learn best in a diverse community where their ideas and questions are respected and where children are guided through the process of building meaningful understandings.

    Multi-Age Pre-K, Full Day Program
    Monday-Thursday 9:00am-4:00pm, and Friday 9:00am-12:00pm
    For children who are two to five years old at the start of the school year

    The Multiage Class at Brooklyn Schoolhouse is a rich environment for learning through play and experience. The variety of learning styles and perspectives children bring to a multi-age group fosters family-like, caring characteristics between children as they enrich each other's learning.

    We practice emergent curriculum; new studies emerge from the children's interests and play each year. Teachers infuse the curricula with the academic concepts children need to be familiar with before Kindergarten. Younger children have the opportunity to be exposed to these concepts and learn higher-level cognitive and social skills by observing and learning from older children. Older children have the opportunity to help teach the concepts that they are mastering.

    The second half of the day is dedicated to our Nature School curriculum. Nature-based education promotes the positive development of the whole child. In our work, we cover topics ranging from composting and recycling to basic botany to geology, all with the goal of inspiring a love of and connection to the natural world.

    A core value of the full-day program is to create a safe, warm and nurturing community. Children will have opportunities to organically reflect on their play, practice early literacy skills, and develop their language. Above all, we want each child to feel nourished by the relationships they develop with their teachers, their peers, and their environment.

    Comment:  Review: Very pleased with the school. The teachers are very passionate about their work. Our son has developed so much language and socialization skills in the 2/3s program. Facility is also great and my son loves that they play in the backyard everyday. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. … About the facility: Has outdoor space, Has early morning hours … What would you change? Would like the hours to be a little longer
