If we’re ever going to end inequity, we need to start at the beginning.

Meet some of the children and parents who have participated in ParentChild+


Children have only 1,800 days
from birth to the start of kindergarten.
Each of these days is critical to their school readiness and success.

Too many children fall behind before they even set foot in a classroom and they struggle to catch up.

We intervene. We interject. We object to the secondary life path that these children are on. We see a different path. We help families find the path, set off upon it and succeed together.

What's our Purpose?

Our Models

As simple as they are effective.

One-on-One Model

Early learning specialists (ELSs), who share a community connection with families, meet one-on-one with parents and their 16-48 month-olds twice a week. ELSs support parents in preparing their children for academic success, strengthening families and communities through intensive, consistent long-term home visiting.

Home-Based Child Care Model

Our innovative Home-Based Child Care Provider Model works with a diverse array of caregivers from Family, Friend and Neighbor to group Family Child Care. It builds on the success of our One-on-One model, extending supports to all the key adults caring for children before they enter school. Our early learning specialists work with providers, supporting them and the families they care for in building school readiness skills. This model is uniquely effective because it takes place in the caregiver’s home, during the day, while the children are present.
