The evening highlighted Collaborative’s Centers of Excellence, which utilizes a core curriculum with an innovative, hands-on approach that focuses on 21st century learning skills such as critical thinking, technology and problem-solving.
For 35 years, Collaborative for Children has worked to improve and strengthen the quality of early childhood education, especially in underserved Houston neighborhoods. Studies have shown that strengthening this system has a direct impact on the future school success of children. As we celebrate the work we have accomplished, we also understand there is still much more work to do. In Houston, 47% of children enter school lacking the basic skills to begin kindergarten. If these students fail, it directly affects each of us as there is no future work force, jeopardizing the economic health of our city.
