'Toxic' Preschool in Boerum Hill?

No heat, exposed wires, unpainted walls and noxious fumes emanating from newly installed carpeting.

These are just a few of the conditions parents say they found when they dropped their toddlers off at Brooklyn Children’s Academy Preschool at 25 Dean Street (near Boerum Place) last month, according to the Brooklyn Eagle. The preschool moved to the Dean Street location on Nov. 5 -- it was originally located in Brooklyn Heights, but lost its lease.

It appears that the preschool didn't even have a license to operate at its new location.

McBrooklyn strolled by the preschool today. It definitely was not in move-in condition, at least for little kids. Wires were sticking out of the wall in the front entranceway, and piles of boxes and other stuff were scattered around.

The school's reaction to the charges here.

Updates on this story here and here.
