We know that high-quality early childhood education makes a critical difference in a child’s later learning and life outcomes; and we believe that every child should have the opportunity to access this kind of care. In New Haven the need for affordable quality early childhood education for infants and toddlers is acute. Friends Center, which provides this high quality care and learning, is determined to expand its program – and to expand our support for teachers to facilitate their ability to build careers in early childhood education. We’re opening new centers throughout the city that offer our child-centered curriculum rooted in Quaker values, supported by a comprehensive emotional wellbeing program, and made accessible with sliding scale tuition. We’re also offering an increasing number of our teachers a unique salaried benefit to live rent-free through our Teacher Housing Initiative, facilitating their ability to achieve financial goals.
