Since its founding in 1891, BKS has strived to stop the cycle of poverty where it does the most damage --- in early childhood. Our 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. 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!
