The language gap between rich and poor children begins at birth. In fact, Stanford University research found that 2-year-old children of lower income families may already be 6 months behind in language development. Early learning gives the strongest return on investment, providing a clear path to a college education and career success.
Footsteps2Brilliance is excited to announce our partnership with College Bound from Birth. Designed and delivered by the early childhood education experts at Collaborative for Children, College Bound from Birth is a three-year quality improvement program offered at no cost in selected neighborhoods throughout Texas. Program components aim to improve the quality of early learning, leading to kindergarten readiness. Nobel Prize winning economist, James Heckman, whose research has proven the economic benefits of quality early learning, serves on the Collaborative for Children’s Advisory Board.
