    Comment:  We send our son to Brooklyn Children's House in BedStuy. It's Montessori and wonderful. Full disclosure, we are friends with the woman who runs it, but we met her as our son's teacher and loved her so much, we became friends. But anyway, it's really wonderful.

    Comment:  This is a brand new Montessori pre-k that is AMAZING. The teacher Lisa is Montessori certified and was our son's teacher at Friend's Family Center. The layout is large, sunny, and simple. Do not expect walls of charts and rainbows. It's serene. My son just adores Lisa, we adore Lisa, and she runs a fun, creative, tight ship, in line with much of the early education principles of RIE and of course Maria Montessori. My son loves outdoor play time, music time, and all of the many projects he creates.About the facility: Has outdoor space, Has afterschool options.What would you change? Honestly it's our dream program. We've had our son in 3 other summer programs and daycare's and this one is the most aligned with the Montessori ethos.
