Our Approach

Educare is one of the nation’s most effective early childhood schools. We serve financially disadvantaged children, from birth to age 5, to prepare them for success in kindergarten and beyond. Our approach extends beyond the classroom to help children, families and communities thrive.

Educare Model

Our comprehensive program incorporates everything science says young children need to flourish. We partner with families because learning doesn’t stop when children leave the classroom. We support the continued learning of our passionate teachers and staff because we want to empower them to do their best work. We use data and research to improve our schools because we’re committed to creating a lasting positive impact with every family we serve.


Educare Learning Network

The Educare Learning Network includes Educare schools, Head Start providers, school districts, philanthropists, researchers, policymakers and other like-minded champions who are dedicated to leveling the playing field for young children.


Policy and Advocacy

Educare sparks policy changes to create promising educational opportunities for children in poverty. We educate federal, state and local policymakers about the benefits of investing in early childhood education. And we partner with advocacy organizations to increase access to high-quality early learning programs.
