Welcome to Brooklyn Free Space (BFS), an independent cooperative preschool located in the heart of Park Slope, Brooklyn. 

For over 35 years, BFS has been committed to providing child-centered education in a cooperative community, that engages teachers and parents alike in learning. We are committed to serving a diverse population and offer financial aid to our families in need.

Discussing issues of race and racism with children can feel challenging for many adults in caregiving roles, especially when speaking with the very young. It is a challenge that can be met if we embrace the importance of preparing the next generation to live in and foster an equitable multiracial society, and connect with others to share perspectives, resources and tools. Please join our panel of experts for an evening of honest and open dialogue centered on this critical aspect of community life. Register to Attend!
