A TYPICAL DAY AT PARK SLOPE SCHOOLHOUSE

Park Slope Schoolhouse offers a full-year (September – August) and full-day (7:30 am – 6:30 pm) program with limited school closures throughout the year. Families can choose between a 5-day spot (M-F), a 3-day spot (M/W/F), and a 2-day spot (T/Th).

In addition to our busy classroom curriculum, we have partnered with Bilingual Birdies for a weekly Spanish music class, as well as Super Soccer Stars for a weekly soccer class for all of our classrooms.
