The goal of the Foundation’s early educational transitions grantmaking is to promote an education system in which early learning connects and aligns with later learning.
By connecting and aligning early and later learning, a child’s education becomes a continuum rather than a series of fragmented experiences. In this way, gains made in the earliest years of life can be sustained and expanded.
Our grants support children’s educational transitions and learning trajectories from preschool through third grade. Grants support the professional development and other needs of the early education workforce, as well as policy, practice, and research strategies.
The Foundation does not accept unsolicited proposals.
