The Educare Learning Network is a partnership involving Buffett Early Childhood Fund, Ounce of Prevention Fund and more than 100 other public-private partners across the country. The network includes 21 high-performing, well-evaluated Educare schools that are changing how America approaches early learning. Together, the network serves about 3,400 children and families in 13 states plus the District of Columbia. Nearly 950 staff work at all of the Educare schools. Nearly two dozen of the country’s greatest universities and early childhood scholars are involved in evaluating Educare practices. Each Educare school is designed as a catalyst for change, reaching thousands more children and families by inspiring better practices and more effective public policies at the community, state and federal levels.
