We are excited to share a breaking news.

Gold Material Montessori – Brooklyn School was awarded the Universal Pre-Kindergarten Official Provider Status.

All children born in 2011 are eligible to apply to Pre-K for 2015-2016 school year.


Students are considered for placement at each program they list on their application based on an order called ADMISSION PRIORITIES. You can list up to 12 options on the same application.
