Our comprehensive program incorporates everything science says young children need to flourish.

Data Utilization

Better use of data supports continuous improvement efforts at the child, classroom and program levels. Children benefit from data-driven decisions that lead to more intentional school improvement processes, positive school culture, lesson planning and individualized instruction.

Intensive Family Engagement

Family engagement efforts must reflect an asset-based approach to create authentic and effective partnerships with parents. Parents are recognized, supported and empowered as their child’s first and most important teachers.

High-Quality Teaching Practices

Children thrive and learn best through quality teacher-child interactions on a daily basis, with a strong focus on scaffolding children’s learning and growth in language and literacy, social-emotional development, problem solving and numeracy, and motor development.

Embedded Professional Development

Supervisors and staff benefit from intensive coaching, mentoring, peer learning and reflective practices that result in higher quality care for children and families. Staff are supported in improving practice on a daily basis, in the context of on-the-job learning.

Our four core features work together in a comprehensive and intentional way to achieve a high-quality early childhood program that helps children from birth to age 5 grow up safe, healthy and eager to learn. Educare prepares children for success in school and life, and helps parents develop the skills they need.
