Children’s Village is a non-profit that provides early childhood education and school-age academic enrichment distinguished by excellence and family diversity. Working together with children, parents, and the community, we promote a society that is fair, compassionate, and economically vibrant.
Teachers are the heart of high-quality learning. Their expertise and capacity to nurture positive relationships with young children powerfully impact development and learning.
