Early Engagement is a nonprofit that helps children 0-3 develop lifelong mental skills by coaching adult caregivers, particularly fathers. Thinking, feeling and people skills are not “taught” – they are learned before age 3 from the child’s environment, which is dominated by adult communication habits. We work through parenting classes, coaching programs, media products, and advocacy – to give young children the mental tools that bring success in school, at work, and in relationships.
Early Engagement starts from the simple truth that all parents want to do what’s best for their children. The educators, scientists and policy people behind Early Engagement recognize that a small investment in caregiver’s habits can have an extraordinary lifelong positive impact in the “Mental Wealth” areas of confidence, self-knowledge, resilience, persistence, focus, curiosity, and social skills, among others. Our Strong Start™ coaching sessions, starting with a Dads-only prenatal class, are constantly being improved, as we build out our system out for large-scale positive impact. Please get in touch – please join us in working together – for the future.
