Welcome to
Chickpeas Child Care Center!

Chickpeas is a parent-run cooperative preschool established in 1981. We offer a full-day program for children who are between two years and nine months and three years and nine months at the beginning of September; children may attend three, four or five days a week. Chickpeas also offers a full-day Universal Pre-K program for students who are turning four by year's end. All Chickpeas students are served in one multi-aged group. The day starts between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m. and runs until 3:00 p.m. Extended hours until 6:00 p.m. daily are available as needed, for an extra charge. Chickpeas has three full-time teachers and an after school assistant.

We are located at 451 Seventh Avenue in Park Slope, between 15th and 16th Streets. Chickpeas families and teachers designed and created our beautiful space, which includes an outdoor play area.


The application for the 2015-2016 school year is available on our Admissions page.
