Start Early and Close the Opportunity Gap

We know how to give every child an equal opportunity to learn. To thrive. To reach their full potential. We’re a community of dedicated early learning champions on a mission to change the world one child at a time.

Why are we champions for early learning? Inequality starts at birth. The impact lasts a lifetime. Decades of research clearly demonstrates that quality early childhood education can help break the cycle of poverty, but the U.S. has failed to improve outcomes for children at scale. With your help, we can change that.
