Acerca de

Chickpeas is a parent-run cooperative preschool located in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. As a cooperative, most administrative tasks are performed by parents while three paid, full-time teachers manage classroom and curriculum. Teachers work in staggered shifts between the hours of 8am-6pm. We offer a full-day program for a mixed-age group of three and four year olds. The school consists of a single classroom of 20 children, with the four year olds being part of the city’s PreK For All program.


The Chickpeas curriculum is based loosely on the Bank Street philosophy of early childhood education, which maintains that children learn best through play, inquiry, and exploration. We practice emergent curriculum, creating units of study that stem from the children’s interests and are democratically voted on. We also emphasize social and emotional development, believing that children who display positive self-concepts, secure attachments to peers and staff, and a repertoire of empathic skills are the children most ready to learn, remember, and use academic skills.
