What We Do

The child is at the center of everything we do. As an operating foundation, we work with partners, educators and parents to deliver services in Early Learning, Wrap-Around Support and Knowledge Building. These three cores are our compass and guide all initiatives, whether practice-, policy- or research-oriented. Click on the circles below to find out more about our work in each area.
