Teacher to Student Ratio

BCM’s policy requires one (1) chaperone for every five (5) students. All adults are free—we encourage you to bring as many chaperones as you would like! If the 1:5 chaperone to student ratio is not met, a $25 charge is added to your invoice.

Cancellation Policy

  • In the event that your program must be rescheduled, BCM will do its best to accommodate your group’s needs based on availability of space and educators.
  • Rescheduling will incur a charge of $25 per request. Cancellations require notice of ten business days. Groups that do not provide requisite notice will forfeit their deposits.
  • If your group is running late, please notify us by email: group_reservations@brooklynkids.org. We will do our best to accommodate you. If your group is more than 15 minutes late for a workshop, BCM may need to reschedule your visit. Please make every effort to be on time for your scheduled time slot.
  • Please arrive no more than 10 minutes before your scheduled time. Groups that arrive before 10am may be asked to wait outside until the Museum opens.
