This fall, there will be a new preschool and Kindergarten in Brooklyn Heights — Congregation B’nai Avraham is expanding its popular Kiddie Korner program with new space at the corner of Montague and Clinton streets for infant and toddler daycare, and a Kindergarten class in the Remsen Street synagogue.
The 3,500-square foot space is in the former City Market Café and is the ground floor of the new condo building at 166 Montague St., and is scheduled to finish construction by August and open on Sept. 1. For PDF renderings, click here [pdf], and a flyer is here [pdf].
Preschool director Shternie Raskin said the school is open for anyone, not just Jewish families, and the curriculum includes lessons about Jewish holidays and the Hebrew language incorporated into its general studies. The preschool is for children ages 0-2, and features three classrooms for nearly 60 kids, divided by age. For more information about registration and pricing, visit www.kiddiekorner.org.

Kiddie Korner offered daycare about 10 years ago, but phased it out when the synagogue needed the space. The program is also expanding its toddler program at the synagogue at 117 Remsen St., to include a Kindergarten class.
