Your donation supports children’s health and early literacy, their families, and their early childhood educators.

90% of children’s brain development happens
in their first 2,000 days, from birth to kindergarten.

Your gift strengthens the capacity of educators, families, and the community to build a strong foundation for children’s learning and development during this critical time. We partner with many child care centers, community groups, parenting programs, and medical providers to meet families where they are and help them achieve their goals for their children.

We Value

  • Families of All Kinds

    We believe that supported families are supportive families and they are essential to every child reaching their full potential.

  • Early childhood educators

    We believe they must be well prepared and fairly compensated to ensure a strong workforce and high-quality learning environments for children.

  • Racial Justice

    We believe that dismantling systems of racism and oppression while centering the voices of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color in early childhood education benefits all children, families, and communities.

  • Relationships

    We honor and learn from the strengths of children, families, and early educators. We believe that family and community together play a critical role in children’s learning, development, and well-being.

  • Brave innovation

    We believe it is essential to be bold in our response to the needs and interests of young children, families, and early educators.
