The Foundation Awards More Than $271k to Early Childhood Education Projects

The Foundation has made early childhood education a priority in its funding. According to research, a child’s first eight years are the most critical for human development, and the Foundation believes that building a solid base during these years is the most effective way to assure a productive life rooted in behavioral and physical health.

These early Childhood grants are focused on four critical areas: increasing the quality and accessibility of formal early education for low-income children; improving the health of young children and their mothers; supporting parents and families in their roles as teachers, caregivers, and supporters of their children’s development; and, helping to eliminate summer learning loss among low-income children in greater Worcester.
