Third Sector New England Build Initiative for Early Learning
Susan Hibbard, Interim Executive Director (BUILD)
Early Childhood Development
High quality early education can eliminate the cognitive and language gaps between poor kindergarten-age children and their wealthier peers. The Build Initiative for Early Learning (a project of the national Early Childhood Funders Collaborative) will help New Jersey participate with nine other states to create coordinated systems of high-quality early learning programs, policies, and services to meet the needs of families with children from birth to five. The Schumann grant supports that effort.
