In June 2022 balaa babies, inc. was established to support families in search of quality child care in Brooklyn, NY. This is in response to the decline in child care services created by the pandemic, and the increase in child care deserts in our area. For the upcoming academic year, we are accepting children ages birth to two years old. Contact us for more information.
Why balaa babies, inc.?
According to the Center for American Progress, a child care desert is any census tract with more than 50 children under age 5 that contains either no child care providers or so few options that there are more than three times as many children as licensed child care slots. As of the last cencus, 64 percent of people in New York live in a child care desert.
"Child care deserts are more common in lower-income areas. The lack of quality, accessible childcare often reinforces poverty and stunts economic mobility. While child care deserts are most prevalent in rural communities, they are very common in low-income urban and suburban areas. Urban communities with the lowest income brackets have nearly the same rate of child care deserts as median family income rural communities. An inadequate supply of child care options puts many lower-income families in a financial bind. Not only are many American child care services unaffordable, but families often have to travel further to access care. This limits their ability to commit to careers or additional schooling. Inadequate care can also present problems for children throughout the rest of their lives." ~TorHoerman Law, LLC.
