Interested in learning how to bring Educare to your community?

The core foundation of every Educare School is a public-private partnership involving several partners who join to develop, launch and sustain the school over the long run. These core partners include a lead philanthropic partner, a Head Start and Early Head Start program provider and a school district.

Each school implements the comprehensive Educare model, which is based on research from early childhood development, education, social work and other allied fields.  Four core features compose the Educare model: data utilization, embedded professional development, high-quality teaching practices and intensive family engagement.

Educare schools are state-of-the-art buildings that are designed to provide nurturing spaces for young children and families to thrive. Our schools also send a compelling messaging that our most vulnerable young children and their families are worth our investment.

The Educare Learning Network can advise local partners in exploring whether Educare is a good fit for their community. Contact us for more information.
