Thank you for visiting our website and taking the time to learn about the Family Center at Brooklyn Friends. As of September 2011, the Family Center program is housed in a separate, stand-alone facility at 189 Schermerhorn Street, between Hoyt and Smith Streets.
All Family Center children need to be two years old (at the start of the school year) to enroll in the program, which runs for one school year, from September to June.
- Please note that the Family Center at Brooklyn Friends is not an automatic entry point for the BFS Preschool division at 375 Pearl Street. Children attending the Family Center need to complete the application process for the BFS Preschool 3s program and any other Preschool 3s programs for the 2014-15 school year.
The admissions process for the 2014-2015 school year for the Family Center at Brooklyn Friends
begins with the student's family submitting a completed application,
along with the required $80 fee. We also encourage you to schedule an admissions tour
to see our program.
We begin accepting applications on Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2013. Complete your application as soon as possible, but no later than October 4, 2013. Please note, however, that because the volume of applications may far exceed the number of openings in certain classes, we may need to stop processing applications prior to the deadline. You will be contacted to let you know the status of your application.
Director of Family Center
