We believe that education is an important pathway out of poverty and that high-quality early childhood education, family engagement and early social-emotional learning provide the foundation for school success.


We believe that families because they  are children’s first teachers. Children’s first classroom is their home.  Early experiences are key in a child’s healthy development.

Families need to be valued partners with providers and teachers, helping children be successful in school and life.

ELF is focused on families through our LETS Read program and LETS parent workshops.
