At Brooklyn Preschool of Science we aim to excite young kids about learning and to engage their innate curiosity about the world. Our age-appropriate, science-based curriculum taps into a child’s need to understand how things work, while providing a foundation for meaningful math, language, and literacy development.
Brooklyn Preschool of Science is a place where a child’s sense of wonder is the star of the show. Our integrated science-based curriculum embraces children’s innate curiosity, and provides a foundation for meaningful math, language, and literacy development. We believe in the lifelong benefits of early experiences with STEM, and we believe in fostering a joyous love of learning. At Brooklyn Preschool of Science, we handle insects, build simple machines, and excavate for fossils. We ask questions about the world around us. We observe, predict, experiment, and measure. We love it when kids ask Why.
Both school locations feature a giant living wall and a 300-gallon fish tank. We have blue tongue skinks, crested geckos, bearded dragons, gerbils, hamsters, giant millipedes, stick bugs, and Madagascar roaches in the classrooms. We incorporate this sampling of the vastness of the natural world into several months of our “Living Things in the Neighborhood” units of study. We ask questions and make comparisons. We teach kids to observe and celebrate the world’s living things.
“I’ve always loved teaching science because it’s so hands-on. It’s amazing to see young children here interested in learning about liquids and gasses simply from studying bubbles. The teachers at BPoS work together to create a comfortable environment where learning is fun—and often very messy!”
“As a teacher, it’s a dream to work here. Carmelo believes our students can’t truly understand a concept unless they have created it, touched it, or taken it apart. I often find myself elbow deep in a cool experiment or craft, guiding kids in making their own discoveries, and I have to remind myself that this is my job. I guarantee no one smiles as much at work as I do!”
Just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for an incredible week of camp for Marlon. We were completely blown away by our experience at BPOS. Every single counselor was incredibly friendly and informative and Marlon came home everyday telling us how much fun he had. We can tell this is truly a warm, loving environment and we are so lucky to have experienced the magic.
We had actually found out about the camp program after touring the PS location for our almost 2 year old daughter Luca. I absolutely fell in love with the place but this week has really given us a chance to see how wonderful of a place this truly is that you have created. While she will be continuing on at her previous daycare for next year, I am very interested in her joining you for the 2018-2019 year! We will be in touch!
Thank you and have a great weekend!Read More
