Each year, one third of America's children arrive at their first day of school without the skills necessary to succeed at grade level. When children begin school behind their peers, catching up, especially without additional assistance, is difficult and unlikely.
Jumpstart is a national early education organization that works toward the day every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed. Jumpstart partners with universities and community organizations around the country to deliver our comprehensive curriculum to preschoolers from disadvantaged communities. Jumpstart inspires children to learn, adults to teach, families to get involved, and communities to progress together. – less
