Preschool Application

Thank you for your interest in BHS Preschool! We are happy to process your application as soon as we can and learn about you and your child.  

You can complete an application for the 2022-23 school year for all age groups. Be sure your child was born on or before August 31, 2020 in order to be eligible for the Preschool in fall of 2022.

Currently, there are spaces in our preschool for the current 2021-22 school year only for older twos and for threes.

We are delighted to announce that in the fall of 2022, our school's upgrades will be complete. Careful planning and a gradual, extended work schedule has allowed this process to be a harmonious one with the operation of our school and during next summer's vacation the final work will be done to provide us all new classrooms and a private outdoor play area that is nearly triple what we have had before.

Our current admissions process includes:

  • APPLY Completing this application
  • TOUR Learning more about our school through a tour with the Preschool Director
  • PLAY An individual in-person OR remote play observation so that we can see your child at play and get a chance to speak with you. (Your play visit cannot be scheduled until an application is received.)

If you have questions about our admissions process, please call (718) 522-2070 X136  or email . We look forward to meeting you and your child!





Membership is not required or expected, however we are happy to offer a first-year-family membership to new Preschool families at no cost. Those who enroll will in the Preschool receive an invitation for this option in the summer before entry.

We value your insights into your child's relationships, learning, and development. 

Please note: In accordance with NYS law, the BHS Preschool does not accept religious exemptions from immunization. We will accept valid and documented medical delays or exemptions.


All employees, and all medically eligible visitors aged 12 and up who come to BHS must show proof of COVID vaccination in order to enter. Thank you in advance for helping to keep our community safe and healthy.

We are delighted that you are applying to the Brooklyn Heights Synagogue Preschool! Because it is so important that a parent be confident a preschool is a good fit for their child, we require that parents learn about our school and programming on a tour and schedule a play observation in order for the application process to be complete. Tours may be scheduled before completing an application, or you may submit your application now and we will send information about scheduling your tour.

(For the 2021-22 school year, we are accepting applications for older twos and for young to middle threes on a rolling basis. Placements are very limited.)

Once you have submitted an application and had a tour, we will schedule an individual at school OR remote at-home Zoomed play observation for you and your child. Both parents are encouraged to attend if it is possible since this is also an opportunity for you to ask questions that may have occurred to you since the tour. 

All employees, and all medically eligible visitors aged 12 and up who come to BHS must show proof of COVID vaccination in order to enter. Thank you in advance for helping to keep our community safe and healthy.


We will notify you upon our receipt of your application and if necessary will schedule your tour and group conversation with our Director, Pam Karlin. We will also arrange a play observation so we can see your child at play.   We will also ask you to email a photograph of your child for your file.

The Brooklyn Heights Synagogue Preschool does not discriminate on the basis of religion, race, color, national or ethnic origin, or sexual orientation in its admissions, policies, or educational programs. All acceptances will be in writing; registration is considered complete upon signing and returning enrollment contract and nonrefundable deposit.
