DUMBO Brooklyn

Kids playing at Imagine Early Learning DUMBO

Welcome to Imagine Dumbo! We serve children 2 months to 5 years. Our state of the art, green facility is the newest addition to the Imagine Center Family. We’re located in the fun and expanding neighborhood of DUMBO, Brooklyn (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass). We take full advantage of our location and all the wonderful sites, merchants and activities the area has to offer. For outdoor play our children cross the historic cobble stone streets to the beautiful riverfront Brooklyn Bridge Park with amazing views of the bridges and Manhattan skyline.

Since 2013 we have been contracted with the New York City Department of Education as a Universal Pre-K program for four year olds, focusing instruction on Kindergarten preparation aligned with the New York State Common Core Learning Standards. We have a full day UPK program.
