Bridging ECE and PreK-12 Systems

We work to improve the education continuum children experience from birth (Pre-school) through 3rd grade. We believe that gaps in children’s opportunities and learning outcomes demand organization and system level reform in states, districts, and communities. 

P-3 Leadership Certificate Program 2022-2023 Applications Open

Our new cohort for this fully online program begins June 1, 2022.  The P-3 Leadership Certificate Program is designed for school district and elementary school administrators, as well as their counterparts in early care and education (ECE). The goal is to engage participants in intentional and collaborative learning to deepen their understanding of child development, school leadership, and learning opportunities that dismantle historic inequities.
