How Children Learn
3R’s of Early Learning
Research shows three important processes that shape young children’s development and early learning. We refer to these processes as the 3R’s of Early Learning: Relationships, Repetition, Routines ™. These processes are important because they focus on how children learn rather than what they learn.
Our First Decade of Impact
For the past decade, a committed team at the Anita Zucker Center has been working to create a future in which every child experiences nurturing, responsive relationships and quality early learning experiences that create a strong foundation for future life success.
The A to Z’s of Early Childhood: The Science of Child Development and Learning
We’re leading the way to a future where every child experiences nurturing relationships and quality experiences that create a strong foundation for future life successes.
We collaborate with colleagues locally, nationally and globally to take action that improves outcomes for young children, their families and their communities.
Early Childhood Summit
To address the field’s challenges, the Anita Zucker Center and University of Florida convened transdisciplinary early childhood thought leaders at a national summit.
The Center is a co-sponsor for the 2024 Weyrauch Distinguished Lecture with Nancy E. Dowd and Margaret Beale Spencer presenting “Radical Brown: Keeping the Promise to America’s Children.”
Affiliate Member Research: 1 in 4 Colorado 11th-graders skipped their state’s standardized test − geography and income help explain why
Along with colleagues from Arizona State University, Center Affiliate Katy Chapman explored a unique instance of the opt-out movement in Colorado.
This project will examine the impact of Florida Embedded Practices and Intervention with Caregivers (FL-EPIC) on early childhood providers, families and children.
“We have a scientific and moral responsibility to rethink and reshape the way we support young children and their families.”
