The Foundation provides funding in the following areas: early childhood welfare, early childhood education and play, and parenting education. Early childhood welfare grants support programs that research best child rearing practices and identify models that can provide creative, caring environments to ensure all children thrive. Early childhood education and play grants seek to improve the quality of both early childhood teaching and learning, through the development of innovative curricula and research based pedagogical standards, as well as the design of imaginative play materials and learning environments. Parenting education grants support programs that teach parents about developmental psychology, cultural child rearing differences, pedagogy, issues of health, prenatal care and diet, as well as programs that provide both cognitive and emotional support to parents. Applicants must be able to define measurable outcomes and mechanisms for documenting results, provide for financial accountability, and include detailed program budgets.
