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.

BFS currently only has openings for the upcoming 2016-2017 school year for 2 year old girls in the Jitterbug Classroom.  Eligible children, for these spots, will be at least 2 years and 5 months by September of 2016, with birthdays between November 2013 and April 2014. Find out more.

All applications will automatically be added to our waitlist, in the order that they are received.  Tours are available for families extended offers of admission through the BFS or DOE Pre-k-for-All lottery.
