The Maple Street School
Located in Brooklyn, NY, Maple Street School is a parent cooperative preschool emphasizing family involvement and connection to the community. Setting up at a new location two years ago was an opportunity to intentionally create an environment in their classrooms that would serve to foster a sense of family and community. In this interview staff members explain how their choice of furniture supports this vision.
We don't have a large budget; we are a parent cooperative. We believe in investment. It's important to us that our things are going to last. And, we use things pretty hard, we are very roly-poly, artistic people, and rough on the things that we have. We really needed to invest, because we can only take out all those loans one time.
