Supporting the establishment of the Early Learning Fund through a three-year partnership with New Profit to bolster reach of quality early learning models.
Despite the critical importance of the early years, too few quality early learning models reach children and families at scale today. The Early Learning Fund is working to identify and overcome these challenges.
The Early Learning Fund seeks to influence the early childhood sector in the U.S. by:
- Fostering entrepreneurship and supporting advocacy efforts to encourage greater innovation and build pathways to scale for effective programs; and
- Investing in innovative approaches to whole-child development with the potential for scale or sector-level influence.
The first investments of the Fund included MIT Media Lab and Acelero Learning. The Early Learning Fund is also investing in policy and advocacy efforts through America Forward, New Profit's policy arm. The next round of investments is expected in Spring 2017.
