High-quality early childhood education can transform a child's ability to succeed in school and in life. This forum examined the progress the City of Boston has been making in its efforts to ensure universal access to high quality Pre-K experiences in neighborhoods across the city.
As part of the Vision 2020 strategic plan, the Boston Foundation committed to exploring and supporting an early childhood strategy that will improve young children's readiness for success in school and life. Throughout the coming year, a series of forums and convenings will be hosted by the Foundation to highlight opportunities and challenges in the early childhood space.
This forum is the first in the series. The second forum, The Crucial First 1,000 Days: Exploring Collaborative Models That Prepare Children for Success, was held on December 6, 2017.
