Our interdisciplinary approach focuses on young children’s development and learning from birth to age 5. These first 2,000 days of a child’s life open lifelong pathways to learn and contribute to our society. The Anita Zucker Center for Excellence in Early Childhood Studies is built upon four key pillars:
KNOWLEDGE: Generate and share applied science to improve real-world practices
LEADERSHIP: Mentor the next generation
ENGAGEMENT: Establish connections and convene conversations to effect change
IMPACT: Ensure transformative outcomes through sustained commitments and leadership
