Even though we subscribe to the earnest belief that it takes a village to fully provide our children with the benevolence and resources they need to soar the heights of success, in most respects, we feel that it’s even more important to ensure that the villagers (the adults who make up the village) are ideally suited and have access to the very best of means, which will enable them to effortlessly do so. With the Convenient Commitment Initiative ©™, Bottles-N-Backpacks Child Development Center, Inc., along with a host of many other businesses, non-profits, and community partners concerned about the wellbeing of the communities that offers its patronage, have decided to invest back into the people, environment, and educational practices/programs that will yield the most conducive results for growth, sustainability, abundance of resources, and in particular, social norms that focuses on reestablishing a lifestyle of harmony and tranquility amongst its residents.

Through a synergizing mix of community partners, various vehicles, and multiple programs, we have developed the most efficient and practical solutions for the following:

causes related to a misplacement of frustration and anger stemming from a job/career where there is no sense of passion or purpose involved; lack of awareness towards inadequate role modeling behavior, which is ultimately perpetuated by our youth; poor quality of health and emotional instability due to daily stresses related to concerns of providing for oneself and/or their family; lack of optimum nutrition, exercise, and rest; little to no understanding of how children’s brain and body develop, either prior to or during pregnancy, which can support and maximize their learning potential; mismanagement of wealth as a result of financial illiteracy; concerns of safety and protection within one’s own neighborhood/household; low self-esteem, confidence, and an inability to rise above inopportune circumstances; not being able to afford or granted access to the best of healthcare services and cutting edge knowledge, as it relates to cures for many ailments/diseases; miseducation and/or scanty access to a quality education; diminishing afterschool and summer programs for the enrichment of our youth; consistently enduring and not being able to recognize relationships that are unhealthy for oneself and/or children; increased unemployment resulting from an absence of skilled trades, training, and development; etc.

The key component to making an endeavor such as this actually work is to address the individual needs of the entire person or, in this case, one villager at a time. However, due to the fact that everyone’s circumstances, requirements, or desires are different, our initial challenge was to find a model that would work for all stakeholders involved. By using a strategic method that is centered on one’s passion, purpose, talent, occupation, specialty, hobbies, interest and skillset, we’re able to conveniently get any number of participants to commit their time or resources, simply by doing the things that they love or that comes to them naturally. Therefore, regardless of if you are a woman, man, child, business, organization, or entity of any kind, that is in need of support or looking to give it, the Convenient Commitment Initiative ©™ is an assured way to aid in the revitalization of distressed communities, while at the same time fulfilling a sense of purpose within oneself. Thus, we formally describe the Convenient Commitment Initiative as:

A synergetic model that has been crafted to resolve systemic issues and root causes, which gives rise to environments that are determined to be “underserved”; “impoverished”; “oppressed”; “at-risk”; and/or social-economically disadvantaged/despaired. Via a wholistic approach or philosophy, geared toward implementing solutions within 9 key focus areas of a person’s life and the community in which they call home, the CCI fosters benevolent and impactful change amongst its serving population, producing sustainable, as well as paradigm-shifting results.

In any event, we look forward to seeing you sitting at the dinner table of change, real soon!

Warm Regards,

B-N-B Elemental University ™ (B-N-B EU) is a program that is based on an advanced early learning curriculum, which was designed to take advantage of the rapid brain growth that occurs within the first 5-7 years of a child’s life. You may be familiar with the saying, “children are like sponges”. Well, as it turns out, the remarkable absorption rate of information, coupled with the experiences that a child is exposed to within that 5-7 year window, can greatly mold their studying habits, cognitive reasoning, behavior characteristic, emotional intelligence, confidence, and overall, their personality, well into adulthood. Therefore, it is imperative that we not leave this phase of development to chance, but that we, instead, interject innovative learning measures that ensures we uphold our commitment to creating a brighter future.

With a fusion of the very best of traditional teaching methods, modern advances in technology, years of compiled Ivy League research focused on early childhood development, 12-plus-years of owning/operating a childcare center, and, most importantly, with over a combined 300 years of effective parenting experience by a team of professionals, we offer B-N-B EU to our families as a wholistic approach for nurturing and cultivating the mind, body, and spirit connection of our young ones. Through a seamless blend of interactive fun, hands-on learning, and an academic curriculum that both parent and child will appreciate, our lesson plans are structured in a way where each year builds upon the next. This cumulative learning technique and discovery process is intended to have the infants and toddlers that are enrolled at any Bottles-N-Backpacks center, during those most crucial years of development, expressing competencies at least 2 grade levels higher than their peer group before completing kindergarten.
My son now 8 started out at Bottles and Backpacks when he was 2 years old and i believe it was pivotal in his development and readiness for school.
