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.

ELF Holiday Book Store

tumblr_lvy6ijuCsk1r59dlxo1_500.pngDuring the month of December, Pre-K and Kindergarten children in the Seamless Transitions program build “ELF Book Stores” in their classrooms. They earn “money” doing good deeds during the first week of the month to shop for books for classmates (chosen out of a hat) as holiday gifts.

The program involves literacy, math, problem-solving, creative arts and social skills.

Over the years, more than 500 age-appropriate books have been donated to the project.
