Tulsa Educare’s mission is to help break the cycle of poverty through a flagship, very early childhood education program and through transfer of best practices to other Tulsa programs.
Educare is a research based program with a foundation in the best of early childhood practices that ensure school readiness of children most at risk for school failure. It is in a specially designed place that nurtures early learning and sends a clear message that we must invest in early childhood education because children are born learning. It is an innovative partnership between private philanthropists, Head Start/Early Head Start, Tulsa Public School officials and community partners dedicated to narrowing the achievement gap for children in their communities. Everyone works together on this compelling platform to raise awareness and drive change among policymakers, business leaders and early childhood providers of the vital importance of learning during a child’s first five years of life on long term success.
