Weeksville Gardens Community Center

For more than 125 years, Brooklyn Kindergarten Society has provided children from low-income families a quality early education that cultivates the skills they need to succeed in kindergarten and beyond. BKS preschools are located in some of Brooklyn’s most impoverished communities. We provide a high-quality education, engaging classrooms, enriching experiences, and critical family services. BKS strives to stop the cycle of poverty where it does the most harm—in early childhood.

Our Weeksville Gardens Community Center is the next phase in this work, providing a continuum of care beyond preschool for children and families. Current and planned community center programming includes: health and wellness, arts and culture, financial literacy, STEM, mommy and me, aftercare, and senior services. Together, these programs form a holistic, intergenerational safe haven offering empowerment, mentorship, and learning in the BKS tradition of quality education and care for Brooklyn communities.
