Especially post pandemic, children’s learning has taken a detour. Our program has proven to provide the road map for teachers to lead children back on the road to literacy. Our program has been proven to increase literacy in the ﬁrst year by 8 months growth, erasing the opportunity gap.
Quality connections with adults is the foundation for child growth and development. Our training model gives adults the conﬁdence and know-how to accelerate child development, foster positive mindsets, and strengthen communities.
We collaborate with you to create professional learning plans that are diﬀerentiated based on the unique context of each community. We leverage training, observation and feedback as critical levers as we monitor progress toward a shared vision of conﬁdent and capable learners. The data collection methods taught in our program ensure that adults are able to tailor their interactions based on the child’s developmental stages.
When paired with evidence-based instructional tools our model is proven to be eﬀective in increasing school readiness and equity for dual language learners, children in poverty, and children of color. While all children beneﬁt from our program, in instances where diﬀerences were found, they favored ‘at-risk’ students. 2013 Study by University of Chicago, NORC (link to research section).
