Each day includes opportunities for free and structured play. There is time for arts and crafts, building, stories, music, and dance. Everyday will also include time outside. Our preschool program taps Brooklyn’s many resources and whenever possible includes enrichment teachers ready to share their talents. We plant a garden, create mosaics, play the drums, jump, dance, explore, and make new friends - all in Spanish. We have developed a curriculum that uses language,art, music, movement, and science to cultivate global and environmental awareness. Our mission of nurturing global citizens and stewards of the environment is reflected in everything we do: the material we use, the holidays we celebrate, the event and activities we do, and outings we take.

We utilize positive discipline techniques and strategies to support children’s social and emotional development.
Children do not need to be potty trained at the start of the school year. When your child is ready to be potty trained we will support your child and potty training process.
We support our curriculum through walking trips throughout the neighborhood including regular visits to Prospect Park Greenwood Playground, and the Windsor Terrace Library. The Sea and Mountains Classroom also takes 3 additional fieldtrips over the school year. When necessary, we use public transportation or school buses to reach our fieldtrip destinations. Parents are welcome to attend fieldtrips. All fieldtrips will have at least one parent or teacher chaperone for every two children. Past field trips have included: Brooklyn Children’s Museum, Central Park Zoo, New York Transportation Museum, Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, Construction Kids, Cumbe Dance, and Brooklyn Museum.
