ABOUT

Excellence Baby Academy provides early childhood and parenting education classes for, and home visiting to, families with children ages zero to three living in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, and similarly-underserved communities.

We prepare children for long-term success by priming them to begin school with fundamental knowledge, skills, and an eagerness to learn and empowering their parents to be active participants in, and advocates for, their children’s learning and development.

We connect families with, and facilitate access to, such community resources as health and mental health professionals, social service agencies, early intervention for children with developmental delays, and community groups, activities, and enrichment opportunities through our resource and referral network.
