"The communication between staff and parents is exceptional - they will work with you to make your child's learning and enrichment experience ideal for your situation. The kids are learning, thriving and most of all, living their best existence during these incredibly difficult times.
This place is worth every penny. Corrie and her team are an amazing addition to our neighborhood and Dream City is just what the kids needed for a little dose of normal in this very abnormal year." - Nona R. , Brooklyn, NY

- PBL Project Based Learning Approach -
Not only do students learn how to work better in group by providing their own input, listening to others, and resolving conflicts as they arise, students also form relationships with community members when working on projects, gaining insight for careers and beyond.
Students learn to look at problems with a critical thinking lens, asking questions and coming up with possible solutions for their project.
In working on a project, students learn to manage obstacles more effectively, often learning from failure and possibly starting over from scratch.
Students learn how to solve problems that are important to them, including real community issues, more effectively—even learning from failure and possibly starting over.
