If you didn’t already know, the preschools in Bococa are bursting. Finding a space for your pre-kindergarten child for a few hours a week sometimes resembles applying to Harvard–with phone calls, referrals, loads of paperwork, essays and lots of begging. So it’s nice to see a new face in the crowd. Little Brooklyn Preschool is the brainchild of a PS 58 mom who’s decided to go back to work close to home. In fact, the school is on the bottom level of her brownstone. The school will open for business this fall and is now accepting applications on a first come, first serve basis (you don’t even have to send in a picture or financials!), with the submission date as the level of priority. You can choose from two, three or five mornings a week and find the tuition and application process here.
So what can expect from this home-y preschool? Here’s what they told Bococaland, “Little Brooklyn Play School, owned and operated by a local mother with a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education, is a new home-based playschool opening this fall in Carroll Gardens for 3 and 4 year olds. We offer a child driven, play based, exploratory curriculum where children will engage with high quality open ended materials to re-create their world and imagine new ones. The schedule for a typical day has a basic framework to provide the children with a stable routine, but it is flexible to adapt to the rhythms and natural energy of the children. We encourage children to explore materials and subjects over extended periods of time in multiple ways through play, experimentation, observation, discussion, construction, and art.”
To avoid over-crowding, a maximum of six children will be enrolled per session. Want to get in on the action? Open Houses are scheduled for this upcoming Friday, 24 June from 10am to noon and Monday, 27 June from 6pm to 8pm. To RSVP, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 718-596-6955 (or just show up!). Private tours can also be arranged.
