What is a Collab Kid?

Collab Kids are the building blocks of the future.

Girl with line and star

They are the workforce and the leaders of tomorrow, gaining an early learning experience that will prepare them to overcome the challenges and solve the problems that confront the world in the 21st century. Endlessly curious, creative, and inventive, they are developing the vital next-generation skills that foster lifelong success. And yes – any child can become a Collab Kid.

Collaborative for Children is passionate about empowering families and teachers with the tools to ensure that every child has the best early learning opportunities to thrive in an ever-changing 21st-century world. Collab Kids have those tools. They are ready for the future and all of its possibilities.

Collab Kids benefit from play-based learning and enriched environments through programs like our I Wonder Curriculum and Centers of Excellence, both of which encourage highly engaged, inquisitive learners. And since we also provide school readiness activities that families can access at home, we’re bringing opportunities for long-lasting achievement directly to those who deserve it most.

In addition to cognitive skills, our programming also centers on the next-generation skills that will be needed for next-generation jobs. At the core, we believe a Collab Kid should embody five key attributes:

  • I am a global citizen.
  • I am an innovative creator.
  • I am a leader.
  • I am a digital learner.
  • I am a problem solver.

By embracing those attributes, and taking full advantage of the innovative early childhood education resources we provide, Collab Kids are ready to face the future with confidence, character, and the belief that nothing is beyond their reach.

Why Early Childhood Education? Children who experience a high-quality early learning experience are ready to face the future with confidence, and prepared to seize all of its opportunities. Learn More
