Early Childhood Education

The Foundation believes in developing healthy, happy, creative and curious children. We believe achieving this goal requires the integration of developmentally appropriate, natural and imaginative learning opportunities into the fabric of early childhood education.

The Foundation supports projects that demonstrate some or all of the following strategies:

  • Improving teacher quality
  • Facilitating the sharing of best practices
  • Using place as an integrating context for learning
