BKS is recognized as one of the best school readiness programs in New York City (Root Cause-Social Impact Research October 2010). A growing body of research shows that childhood poverty can cause lasting changes in the brain unless quality intervention efforts begin early. The BKS program has a profound and tangible effect on the children it serves. While many children enter the program behind age expectations, more than 90% of children have caught up and meet or exceed age epxectations! The BKS program is strategically designed to provide academic and social enrichment that are rooted in best practices and are the hallmarks of high-quality preschools everywhere. Professional teachers, developmentally appropriate curricula, strong parental involvement, and links to the public schools the children will later attend, are essential to making a true difference. Longitudinal studies clearly show that early childhood programs that combine high-quality childcare with a strong family support component continue to make a difference in the lives of participants 20 and 30 years later.
Who is Eligible?

Children who are 3 to 5 years old are eligible for Head Start services. Pregnant women and children from birth to 3 years of age are eligible for Early Head Start services. Children and families who are homeless, in foster care, or receive TANF or SSI are also eligible for services. Eligibility is determined by Head Start program staff and some families may be eligible for services if they are determined to be at or below the federal poverty level. Some grantees enroll a percentage of children from families with incomes above the Poverty Guidelines as well.

Families are encouraged to apply.
