The Impact of Your Gift
We believe that providing children with the high-quality, research-backed early learning experiences they need to be successful is the best investment we can make as a society. We also recognize this is an especially critical moment for low-income children and families who are disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. BADM is uniquely qualified to respond to this need because of our expertise in designing STEAM experiences for the very youngest learners.
