Join us for Yuletide

For over 130 years, Brooklyn Kindergarten Society has provided high quality early childhood education to working families in Central Brooklyn. BKS serves more than 200 students, aged 2-5 across our seven early childhood centers.

Yuletide Ball is Brooklyn Kindergarten Society’s largest fundraiser, providing critical resources for our Music & Movement Program which brings tennis, violin, and dance lessons into our seven centers. Beginning this year, Yuletide will also fund our new, state-of-the art Sensory Gym which provides occupational therapy for all BKS students with learning differences and developmental delays. Our Sensory Gym is bright, beautiful, and equipped for countless activities for therapeutic play. It is the first of its kind within NYCHA housing. Together, these programs inspire, challenge, and cultivate our students’ cognitive, emotional, and social development as they expand their fine and gross motor skills. 

Since 1920, generations of Brooklynites have looked forward to the Yuletide Ball, an annual gathering to support Brooklyn kids and celebrate the holidays. Your Yuletide generosity helps us ensure that all of our students have an equal first step in their education. View Yuletide sponsorship opportunities here.
