WHO WE ARE
The Park Slope Child Care Collective is a not-for-profit, licensed, full-day preschool and child-care center. It was founded by neighborhood families in 1971 to provide a stimulating and nurturing environment for the young children (ages 2-4) of working parents. Our approach includes play-based learning, an emphasis on the development of the whole child (social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth), and child-centered curricula.
The Collective student body reflects the ethnic, racial, economic, and cultural diversity of the community. Children learn to recognize what they have in common with one another, while enjoying and respecting what makes each of them special and unique. We welcome and are supportive of all families. We further encourage cultural awareness through our classroom books, language, play materials, activities, and events.
OPEN HOUSE: Our annual Open House is held the first Saturday of December each year. This year it will take place on Saturday, December 7, 10am-1pm. All are welcome – no reservations necessary!
