Why Support Us

Child’s Path aims to stop the cycle of poverty. 75% of children who enter kindergarten without reaching their developmental milestones will never catch up. This exponentially increases the risk these children will later drop out of high school, become a teen parent or not attend college. With your help, we’re changing the futures of thousands of children by providing:


We operate four early learning centers in areas with the greatest need.


We give partial scholarships to at-risk and underserved children.


We use an innovative educational philosophy called Reggio Emilia.
