In addition to choosing their own activities during the classroom work cycle, children enjoy daily scheduled outdoor time and special activities, such as soccer, yoga, gardening, music, and movement. Children on a full-week schedule can participate in all special activities. Weekday piano classes with instructors from The Piano School of NYC are also offered throughout the year at an additional cost. Saturday morning foreign language classes with instructors from Brooklyn Beanstalk are available. At MDS, we take advantage of our close proximity to Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Public Library with trips to these local treasures and other rewarding sites throughout the borough -- and sometimes beyond.
