NOW IN ITS 47TH YEAR, the ECC offers an inclusive and comprehensive preschool program emphasizing the social, emotional, and physical development of kids ages 2-5.

New in 2024: we’re thrilled to be opening a second location, in Prospect Heights—a brand new, state-of-the-art space steps from the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Museum, and Prospect Park.

Whichever location you choose — Prospect Heights or Park Slope — you’ll find a preschool where you and your family can thrive:

Our play-based curriculum emerges organically from your child’s interests, ideas and experiences, maximizing the potential and participation of all types of learners in our classrooms.

Our flexible schedule allows for full days, half days, and extended care.

Our kids explore every day — whether they’re swimming in our pool, playing in Prospect Park, going on walks around the Park Slope and Prospect Heights neighborhoods, or diving into activities including music, creative movement, and art.

Our approach to Judaism is accessible and relevant — using songs, food, rituals, and more to impart diverse values and traditions. Some families choose to enroll in our Dual Language Program. Many are from different faiths. All religious backgrounds are welcome at ECC.
