The Brookside School

The Brookside School offers a regionally unique community preschool that serves children with and without special needs. Your child will participate in an integrated program that serves as a Rondout Valley Central School District Universal Pre-Kindergarten site, features a preschool special education program and is a private-pay option for parents who simply wish to send their child to a top-notch preschool.


Open to all 3 or 4 year old children, The Brookside School offers an individualized curriculum to address the needs of all students while also providing an inclusionary experience through field trips, holiday celebrations and performances for each other and families. If your child requires special services, we can accommodate them. We offer speech and language therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, counseling, parent counseling and training, nursing services, assistive technology services, 1:1 teacher aide and vision services based on your child’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP). If your child has multiple disabilities, Brookside can also provide special education through age 21.


Brookside’s families believe the inclusionary atmosphere is a benefit to all children. The classes allow children with various skills and capabilities to learn and play side-by-side. In this atmosphere, students learn from both the faculty and each other.


At The Brookside School, every child is supported, loved and accepted into an environment where they are provided with rich opportunities to learn and grow.
