After School Program

Join our After School Program

Since 1987, Brooklyn Children’s Museum has offered a free after-school program to families in our community. Currently, the program is based at The Bilingual School – PS 189, located at 1100 East New York Avenue, and serves ninety children in each session. The program is led by a team of BCM educators and support staff from PS 189, and is based on an interdisciplinary curriculum that draws on the exhibits and collections of the Museum.

Brooklyn Children’s Museum after school program is supported by the Department of Youth and Community Development of the City of New York; the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the New York City Council and Council Member Alicka Ampry-Samuel.
