about seedlings

learn about us

Welcome to Seedlings, an intimate preschool located in Brooklyn Heights.


Our children thrive from increased attention with a child to teacher ratio of 4:1. Seedlings' small class sizes create an ideal atmosphere for developing social skills as well as meeting our young one's emotional needs.


We are conveniently located in Brooklyn Heights in a beautiful brownstone with a private backyard. At Seedlings, you’ll see learning happen every day through imaginary play, art, gardening, singing, dancing, science and more. Welcome to a place where the gift of imagination can flourish.


Welcome to Seedlings.
