Program Description

Brooklyn Schoolhouse is founded on the conviction that children have an innate desire to explore, play and learn and are naturally competent and capable learners. It’s easy to see if we look. Think of how they study the way kitchen magnets stick, problem solve to climb trees or instinctively collect rainwater. Children simply can’t not learn. This is why we are a place of engagement, discovery, wonderment, and aliveness. We aim to foster global citizens – ones who embrace coexistence and are inspired and empowered to fulfill their dreams and take responsibility for the sustainability of the planet. (All while splish-splashing in the water buckets they fill.)
