Early Childhood Education
Creating a future in which all children in our community enter Kindergarten healthy, happy and ready to succeed in school and life.
Now, more than ever, research has shown the earliest years of life can set the stage for lifelong physical and mental health, and academic success. Children thrive when they are cared for by responsive and sensitive adults, participate in regular, stimulating early learning experiences, and enjoy healthy food and active play.
We work with education organizations and community stakeholders to create opportunities for low-income infants, toddlers, and young children to receive high-quality education before they even enter Kindergarten. We also provide opportunities for their parents to receive the skills they need to better prepare their children for success in school and beyond.
