Chickpeas Childcare Center, Inc.
Chickpeas is a parent-run cooperative pre-school located in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. We offer a full-day program for a mixed-age group of three and four year olds. We have three teachers and an after-school assistant; however, all of the administrative tasks are performed by the parents.
The Chickpeas curriculum is based loosely on the Bank Street philosophy of early childhood education, which maintains that children can satisfy their curiosity and develop their potential through play where they make choices freely in an unhurried, supportive setting. The emphasis is on creating secure, trusting relationaships with peers and teachers.
