Invest in Early Learning

Why invest in early learning?  Our brains grow faster between the ages of 0 and 5 than at any later point in our lives.  We need to invest in programs and policies that support early brain development in infants and toddlers, because they yield significant returns in the long run through more years of education, more employment, and better health as an adult.  


We operate to inspire and provide leadership for a countywide movement on quality early learning and healthy development for all children ages birth through five. Early Learning Shelby County's vision is that all Shelby County students will enter kindergarten prepared to succeed. Please consider supporting Early Learning Shelby County's efforts by making a donation that will support Shelby County's earliest learners and their families. Your tax-deductible donation supports our work as early childhood advocates and the leaders of this movement.  Invest in Early Learning and be part of the team that's fighting for their future.
