About Us

ParentChild+, a nationally recognized early childhood school readiness organization working in 15 states and six countries, is an innovative two-generation program focused on providing families early opportunities. We work with communities to build strong local sites in neglected and under-funded neighborhoods and with families to build parent-child attachment, school readiness, and school success.
