Our Strategic Vision

Preschool Admissions 2s, 3s, & 4s

Curious, Competent Learners

Play is the essential work of childhood and an important part of developing cognitive, emotional, and problem-solving skills. Our commitment to nurturing the gifts of each child as an individual provides a warm and stimulating environment where children feel free to explore the world around them. The Brooklyn Friends School Preschool program follows a child-centered curriculum that supports individual learning styles and developmental readiness. Our two-year olds begin to discover the world outside home and family and learn about themselves in the context of a community of peers. Our three and four year-olds meet increasingly complex challenges and practice social skills through hands-on, concrete experiences, and become curious, motivated, and competent learners.

To begin the admissions process for Preschool, you may create a Ravenna account and submit an online application.
