Seedlings Learning Logo

Welcome to Seedlings, a fully licensed preschool in Brooklyn Heights.

 

Seedlings is a child-directed yet teacher guided program that takes place in an intimate, nurturing environment that’s positive and respectful of all our children.

 

Our children thrive from increased attention with a child to teacher ratio

of 4 to 1 or even 3 to 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 coveniently 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.
