Community Initiatives

We provide outreach and education services to front line providers in their communities. We work directly with professionals, children, families and communities through a variety of initiatives. Our nature initiative gets teachers comfortable teaching science lessons inside the classroom and the great outdoors while promoting the value of healthy lifestyles and conservation. We also help provide greater access to the arts by helping various cultural institutions develop accessible, child centered and family friendly programming. Preparing the early care and education field for a global community, our master classes in technology: “How to teach the Digital Child” builds the skills and competency of the workforce to teach young children in the digital age, to curate content, to streamline paperwork and give educators more time to set up learning experiences which grow our next generation of global leaders.
