About Educare

The Educare initiative promotes early childhood education through a simple approach: educate and train those who care for our children between zero and three, and up through school age. Educare providers attend workshops on child development, cognition, motor skills, behavior problems, child abuse and neglect. Click on an image below to learn more about Educare opportunities.
