The Early Educator Investment Collaborative (The Collaborative) is a group of national Early Childhood Education (ECE) focused funders who envision a country in which opportunity and achievement gaps no longer exist so that all students, especially children from families with low incomes and children of color, make significant and sustained gains in cognitive, social, and emotional development. One way to manifest this vision is by ensuring that every young child has access to high-quality ECE programs led by well-prepared and appropriately compensated teachers. The Collaborative hopes to drive toward this vision by addressing the inadequacies of current ECE systems, with a focus on breaking down the barriers and addressing gaps in workforce preparation and compensation/financing systems.
