Early Steps to School Success

Since, July 2006, ZERO TO THREE has worked in partnership with Save the Children to launch its Early Steps to School Success (ESSS) project which provides early childhood education services to children birth to five years of age, education services to their parents (through home visits and parent-child groups) and ongoing staff training to early childhood coordinators (home visitors) at sites in Tennessee, South Carolina, Mississippi, Louisiana, Kentucky, Arkansas and Arizona. This program builds on Save the Children’s existing school and community-based program that provides literacy and nutrition support to school-age children (K-8th grade). As the training and technical assistance provider for ESSS, ZERO TO THREE used approaches and materials from its Literacy, Learning and Life project to help design the project and to develop home visiting and parent-child group curriculum materials, a manual for home visitors, and transition materials for parents, pre-K teachers and kindergarten teachers. In addition, ZERO TO THREE plans and implements two national meetings a year to train ESSS staff and provides ongoing onsite and distance training and technical support to the early childhood coordinators and early childhood specialists involved in the initiative.
