Manager - Training and Program Support for ParentChild+ One-on-One Home Visiting Program
ParentChild+ - About Us
A child has only 1,800 days to prepare for kindergarten. Imagine spending those days in a community void of children’s books, without safe places to play, and with few early learning opportunities. ParentChild+’s purpose is to ensure that all children regardless of their race, socio-economic status, or zip code have equal possibilities from the start – we work with families, caregivers, and communities to support not only early literacy and school readiness, but early opportunities.
We are a nationally recognized early childhood school readiness organization working in 16 states and six countries. Our innovative two-generation program focuses on providing families early opportunities. We work with marginalized and under-served communities to support families and other caregivers in preparing children for school success.
We envision culturally responsive, high quality, community-based early education resources as a critical support for families, levelling the playing field before children ever enter their firstoom, helping families to access a future full of possibilities, and moving us closer to an equitable future for all children.
