The Foundation for Early Learning is a non-profit organization that supports the learning of children, birth through age five.
The latest reports state that one of every three children entering kindergarten is not prepared for school. Our goal is to eliminate this preparation gap and to ensure that every child is ready socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually to succeed in school.
We do this by providing resources to ensure all children have strong start to school.
We believe this takes work on two levels.
To start, we support parents as their children's first teachers by providing grants, free publications and online services.
The Foundation for Early Learning also works with partners across Washington State to support high-quality early learning experiences. Together we make a real impact in Washington.
Since the Foundation for Early Learning was established in 2000, we have awarded over $6.6 million in grants to community groups, built a network of more than 30 community groups by connecting thousands of parents and caregivers with local early learning resources.
