Learn More About Our Mission
The Educare model was developed to address this need and to begin to narrow the
achievement gap for low-income young children. Each Educare center combines available
public funding from existing early childhood programs to deliver the highest-quality
early childhood education and care to young children in its community.
Each program puts into practice the latest science, research, and evidenced-based
strategies to help vulnerable infants, toddlers and preschoolers build the skills
they need to arrive at kindergarten safe, healthy, eager to learn, and ready for
school. Public and private investments in quality early childhood programs like
Educare reduce the need for future expenditures on special education placements,
public assistance, workforce training and law enforcement programs. These investments
are critical to securing the future health and success of individual children and
