We partner with quality care centers in our community to allow them to continue to provide top-level care.
90% of a child’s brain develops in the first 5 years of a child’s life. Children that do not attend quality centers may not have the same educational opportunities as their peers, putting them at risk for falling behind. For kids who aren’t school ready, going to kindergarten can be a struggle.
We support every child’s right to quality learning activities and experiences, no matter where they get their care. We organize convenient training for families and caregivers on early learning and other important education factors. We also partner with care centers in our community to provide the training and materials they need to meet indicators of a quality center, with a focus on centers and shelters in low income neighborhoods to serve unique populations.
