We believe that every child deserves to realize their dreams of a better education, better job, and better future. Collaborative for Children is at the forefront of making that happen, improving the quality of early childhood education to start all kids on the right path to life’s possibilities.
Our mentors work with early child care education professionals, guiding them in the use of Collaborative for Children’s evidence-based teaching programs and methodologies to ensure that 70 percent of kids show clear progress toward school readiness.
Collaborative for Children captures and analyzes data in real time to get a better idea of how our programs are performing. By measuring what matters, we can improve outcomes for children, expand our resources, and assure accountability.
Collaborative for Children’s values are clear and unwavering: We relentlessly pursue excellence; innovate boldly and courageously; respect and promote diverse points of view; and celebrate transparency.
