SCHOOL DAY CLASSES
APRIL 5TH - JUNE 25TH
1 to 5 days per week
11 am to 2 pm
(early drop off is available for an additional fee)
Our school day classes are designed to support public school families during this unprecedented school year, and provide the kind of hands-on, in-person learning unavailable through a computer screen. Perfect for families choosing blended learning, remote-only or homeschooling. These school day classes are possible due to donated time and are available at cost, to offer in-person, outdoor play and environmental, child-led education to as many children as possible.
How it works
Each class is limited to six students in pre-K - 1st grade and takes place all outdoors in Sunset Park, under the facilitation of a trained playworker. Our school day classes follow children's interests in a forest school format, with an emphasis on learning through play.
Even if the DOE moves to an all-remote schedule, our classes will remain open as long as businesses are open. If we must close temporarily due to staff or a student contracting COVID, or for severely inclement weather, make-up classes will be offered at a date and time selected by Brooklyn Wild. Please read our full COVID safety policy.
One day per week (12 classes): $696
Two days per week (24 classes): $1,392
We can accommodate alternating days depending on availability.
