Brooklyn Kindergarten Society (BKS) has dedicated itself to providing high quality early childhood education to children from low-income families for the last 125 years. Our five, soon to be six, early childhood learning centers are located in public housing in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Crown Heights, and Brownsville.
We serve nearly 400 children in full-day educational classes, each enriched with pre-literacy and language programs as well as arts and music instruction. BKS recognizes that support is often necessary beyond the classroom. To that end, our family services staff provides counseling, referral services, and workshops for children and their families.
Although two of every three children who enter BKS centers test “at-risk” for developmental delays, BKS reverses this delay as year after year more than 90% complete the BKS program on par or better than their peers across all socio-economic groups!
Team BKS is raising critically needed fund to ensure that Brooklyn's most vulnerable children receive a high quality early education!
