Did you know about 90 percent of a child's brain development happens before the age of 5? By placing tutors in preschool classrooms, our youngest learners get extra academic support and encouragement that helps ignite a love of learning and get them ready for school. But Early Learning Corps needs more people to give their time for kids to succeed. The amazing thing about our program - we train ordinary people to make an incredible impact as tutors.

Building Blocks for Success

We know young learners who receive regular exposure to literacy and numeracy-building activities are more likely to become successful students later in school. To reach the most students possible, Early Learning Corps is designed to support America’s preschools.


Early Learning Corps has proven to be effective in any setting. We’ve scaled nationally to benefit schools in urban, suburban, and rural community –  all with successful outcomes!


Preschoolers who received tutoring substantially outperformed their peers in emergent literacy outcomes.


 Our programs provide a good value for schools by providing hundreds of hours of support for the students and staff. Some locations pay a site fee. 


Early Learning Corps students outperform students at comparison sites on key emergent literacy outcomes, including measures of vocabulary, phonological awareness, and alphabet knowledge. 

Ninety-nine percent of school partners, including principals, would recommend Early Learning Corps to others.
