Commitment to Action

Uncovering a Promise for Excellence in Birth-Six

Commitment by

McTeague Catalyst Fund, McCall Kulak Family Foundation

In 2013, the Trust for Learning, along with its partners, committed to supporting a one-year study of four highly successful Montessori-based, early childhood and parent engagement programs in vulnerable communities. This study seeks to develop evidence and experienced- based guidelines for implementing high quality birth through six family/learning centers and inform best practices in the fields of child development, teacher preparation and parent/community engagement. In the first year, the Trust for Learning's Commitment will culminate with a symposium in June of 2014 where they will present the preliminary analysis of their study and engage stakeholders interested in expanding, replicating and strengthening the work of the subject centers.
