Equal Possibilities From The Start

Children from low-income families hear 30 million fewer words by age 3 than their more affluent peers. 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.

Core Model

An early learning specialist, who most likely lives in the neighborhood, arrives at a toddler's home with books and educational toys. They are welcomed inside where they sit with the child and parent and engage in a joyous educational encounter together. The parent and child begin to share a love of learning that will last a lifetime and change their lives.
