Early Childhood

We want to help children get the best beginning possible towards a bright future. Across both our regions, we are working in partnership with other early childhood initiatives and collaborations to help maximize the reach and impact of our investments in early childhood. In addition to supporting the capacity and quality of early childhood providers and programs, the Foundation looks to support opportunities that embed social and emotional learning into young children’s experiences and learning. The Foundation also invests in partnerships and systems that promote developmental screenings for children to ensure they are on track or getting help by connecting families to the interventions and supports they need for healthy development.
