Caplan Foundation For Early Childhood
|Category: Children, Youth & Families
The Foundation supports innovative, creative, projects and programs with the potential to significantly enhance the development, health, safety, education, or quality of life of children from infancy through five years of age. The Foundation awards grants in three 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 provide creative, caring environments that 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 childrearing differences, pedagogy, issues of health, prenatal care and diet, and programs that provide both cognitive and emotional support to parents. The deadline is for letters of intent. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
