Beginning with Children

Beginning with Children (BwC) is a Brooklyn based school management organization founded by school reform leaders Joe and Carol Reich over 20 years ago on a deep belief in the power of education. BwC supports two New York City Public Charter Schools and an alumni and college success program that provides education and academic supports for students from Pre-K to college. Our schools, Beginning with Children Charter School 2 and Community Partnership Charter School are located in Bedford Stuyvesant, Clinton Hill and Williamsburg where approximately 80% of our families qualify for free/reduced lunch. Our hard-working families, face high rates of low-wage employment, and find it increasingly difficult to break the cycle of poverty and continuing injustice which plague these neighborhoods. At BwC we know that academic success and college completion have proven to be the most effective way to promote social and economic mobility. We are committed to creating strong centers of learning that transform the lives of students and families and revitalize communities.

Beginning with Children continues to successfully move K-8 graduates through high school graduation and college enrollment. The success of BwC Scholars is the product of caring, committed and talented educators who work collaboratively with families to meet the needs of our students. As we continue to develop our Professional Learning Community we invite talented and innovative educators to join us in our mission to provide quality instruction to every child in every classroom.

Our Schools

Beginning with Children schools empower scholars to meet high academic standards throughout their education and embrace a set of core values that are essential to success in life. Our graduates will be independent thinkers who are committed to succeeding in college preparatory programs and becoming active and engaged citizens in their communities.
