With the launch of Early Works, the Children's Institute is expanding its work to include on-the-ground projects that clearly demonstrate the effectiveness of linking high-quality early childhood education with the elementary years. We know that investment in the early years, beginning at birth, is one of the singlemost effective ways of improving a child's academic and emotional success. With Early Works, Oregon joins a national movement demanding — and building — a better outcome for kids. Please join us here as we make it happen together.
In your opinion, what is the biggest hurdle in connecting early childhood education with the K-12 system?
HomeForward's goal is to ensure that all people in our community are sheltered, and they know that ongoing community-based education and support that starts early can make a big difference for low-income families.
