Welcome to Little Maroons. We are a parent supported child care cooperative located in Brooklyn, NY.
Little Maroons is a parent-supported childcare cooperative operating from a child-led, African-centered curriculum rooted in indigenous wisdom. In the spirit of the Maroon communities, the children and their families are encouraged to embody the principles of independence, self-determination and cooperation.We offer your family more than a preschool or afterschool. We offer a loving, safe, communal, personal and cooperative educational environment for your child to grow. We will offer the very best care that we can for your child.
We believe that self-esteem is a critical component to optimal growth in young children; we focus on developing the socialization and self-help skills needed to have a positive self-image. We will also do our best to assist your child in developing important values such as: love for heritage, good manners, caring / sharing, patience, responsibility, independence, compassion for self and others, as well as communication and teamwork. We believe that children learn well through play and we will implement these important values throughout our day.
