Did you know about 90 percent of a child's brain development happens before the age of 5? By placing tutors in preschool classrooms, our youngest learners get extra academic support and encouragement that helps ignite a love of learning and get them ready for school. But Early Learning Corps needs more people to give their time for kids to succeed. The amazing thing about our program - we train ordinary people to make an incredible impact as tutors.
