Brooklyn Sandbox offers a private 2s program as well as public 3K and 4K programs. Our school year runs from September to June with an optional private summer program for families who enroll in the school year. Our admissions process entails attendance at one of our Virtual Open Houses. Applications for our 2s preschool program must be submitted in February for entry in September. For applications to our 3K and 4K programs, please create a MySchools account at myschools.nyc for additional information, application timelines and email notifications.
Our Open House season opens in the winter of the year preceding entry into school. Our Open House is comprised of two components:
