When you work with children, you see the fruits of your labor in unexpected ways: In a child’s eyes when she first learns to sound out a word. Or when he or she talks excitedly about a character in a story, sharing every minute detail.
Whatever the situation may be, we’re fortunate enough to see the results of our work play out before us each and every day.
At Jumpstart, we’re committed to bringing broad, sustainable change in early childhood education to the children who need it the most.
