    Comment:  Our son is in UPK at Brooklyn Treehouse. We also did the 3s program there (after a year at Beansprouts, which we also really liked).We absolutely love Treehouse. It's been a lifeline during the pandemic. The head of school is very communicative about all the ups and downs and has been extremely careful about safety measures. Classes are small and the teachers are very warm and nurturing. It's a really nice group of parents, too.

    Comment:  LOVE Brooklyn Tree House, my daughter (October birthday) started this year in the 2s program. Their first day of school can’t be until their 2yo birthday, but they’ll allow them to come a couple times a week (with caregiver) for yoga or music class from September on, to help them acclimate. Really warm, caring environment with top notch teachers.

He just started the 3’s program.The teachers are all wonderful and caring and the classrooms are warm and colorful. They also have extended hours which is so helpful for us. They have been very flexible when we need to change the hours/days he attends.

    Comment:  I love Brooklyn Treehouse. The Director Lisa is great. She is so nice and flexible. We got a spot without having to jump through hoops and when we needed to delay our start day she was really understanding. I love that she created a program that included all the best things she has learned over the years. There were elements of play and education and physical development. My daughter loved going there and made a ton of friends. They also have UPK so our daughter could stay there for UPK which was amazing. We ended up moving right before the start of UPK and missing out on UPK at Brooklyn Treehouse was one of the hardest parts of the move.

    Comment:  We switched over to Brooklyn Treehouse from a different 3s program since our daughter was unhappy and bored at the previous place, and it made a big difference. We liked that it's more play-based. The teachers are actively engaged in playing with the kids, there are always several options for different kinds of play/activities, and the facilities are new and clean. There's a small indoor play area for kids if it's too cold to go outside, a rooftop playground, and kids go to the 16th street playground when the weather is nice. Each week there are new themes for the kids to explore and they bring back lots of artwork. They get weekly music class and yoga. Has outdoor space, Has afterschool options, Has early morning hours. Sometimes are slow to respond to e-mails. Would love for them to supply meals just as pre-k does.

    Comment:  My son was in the 2s-3s class and we love his teacher! She has well planned out weekly themes that are explored in ways so amazingly creative and hands on. They explore new textures and ways of making things every week. They work on solo and group art projects. My son has learned so much but even more importantly he feels safe and very happy. The director and her assistant are easy to talk to and to reach and are very helpful with flexible parent schedules. The older age classrooms are spacious and there is an indoor soft play room for bad weather days. They do yoga and live music every week and take tours of local businesses- the vet, the bakery. etc. We're really happy overall!

    Comment:  We have our son (currently in the 2's class) and our older son in UPK at Brooklyn Treehouse. Our older son was also there last year.I can't say enough good things about the school, the teachers and the Head of School, Lisa Armenato. She has decades of experience and has created a wonderfully welcoming, nurturing and creative environment for the kids. It manages to feel intimate without being stuffy, warm and really invested in the children's development. Lisa is an accessible head of school, who has been very responsive whenever we did have questions/concerns. She also took some time to share her own impressions around Kindergartens in the neighborhood and help us navigate that process for our older child. The teachers in all the classrooms seem to know the kids in the school beyond their class and I have really seen both my boys flourish there.

    Comment:  Age: < 1 year Review: This is our first experience with preschool as my son turned 2 this year. The facility is great and the staff is fantastic. Lisa, how owns and runs the school is incredibly attentive and caring. She gives every student personal attention. My son's class has roughly 15 (max) students per day and has three teachers in the class. All three teachers are great with the kids and my son comes home excited each day. He has learned quite a bit this year and surprises us regularly with new information that he learned in school. They have been supportive with potty training and encourage good behavior with gentle and kind encouragement. The curriculum is based in learning through activity and play, which we really enjoy and believe our son gets more out of than a more rigid program would.

All of the teachers are extremely caring, patient and knowledgeable. They go out of their way to get to know as much about the children and the parents as possible and create many family events so parents can be involved. They have music classes and rotate between different rooms throughout the day so they are not stuck in one room. The owner of the preschool is very nice, helpful and flexible to meet families needs. Highly recommend this school!!Would you recommend? Highly recommendWould you send your child again? Absolutely
