About Our Learning Center


Audrey Johnson is a highly regarded early learning center; located in the Bushwick area of Brooklyn for over 45 years. 

Our Director, Ms. Peterkin, has received her Master of Science in Teaching Early Childhood Education/Teaching Students with Disabilities Birth-Grade 2 from Touro College and Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from City College of New York. She holds a Permanent New York State Teaching Certification and an associate degree of Applied Science in Early Childhood Education from The Borough of Manhattan Community College. She has worked at Audrey Johnson for 33 years in various teaching capacities!


Our program has a multilingual staff that speak English, Spanish and Haitian Creole. We have collaborated with New York University, Colombia University, Bank Street and Weill-Cornell to bring a variety of educational programs to support and instruct our teachers and staff, ensuring that our pedagogy is always current, engaging and developmentally appropriate.  


We offer monthly parent workshops, covering a variety of early learning and community related issues, in order to assist parents in making informed decisions for their families.   


Our program always encourages healthy eating and physical fitness for our children.  Through the Citizens Committee of New York, we have a Spring/Summer Garden that is planted, cared for, and enjoyed by our children and teaching staff.  Through our collaborations with WIC and the Bushwick Food Corp., we have provided cooking classes for our parents, as well as encouraged movement by providing yoga classes and line dancing for our children and parents.  In addition, we have an annual Health Fair that provides vital information to our families and community regarding a variety of health related issues.


We are thrilled you have found your way to our amazing center, please get in touch if you would like more information or to take a tour, and we hope to hear from you soon!
