To provide renewed support for the Science and Math Lead Teacher to further implement and expand the Science and Math Enhancement Initiative in their Early Childhood Center (“ECC”). The initiative has provided greatly enhanced hands-on science and math learning for their students, continual professional development for the ECC teaching staff, and parent engagement to ensure that learning continues outside the classroom. The goal of the initiative is to provide the 141 low-income three- and four-year old children whom they serve in their Early Childhood Center each year with a foundation in science and math that will have a permanent positive impact on their academic achievement, and help to close the achievement gap with their more advantaged peers. It will also strengthen the Neighborhood House’s role as a leader in developing and sharing innovations to advance the field of early childhood education.
