CHILDREN'S EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES
Learning, Special Needs, Enrichment, and More
The goal of Early Learning at the U.S. Department of Education is to improve the health, social-emotional, and cognitive outcomes for all children from birth through 3rd grade, so that all children, particularly those with high needs, are on track to graduate from high school, college, and are career-ready. Here you can find information on a variety of Early Learning programs and initiatives. Tip sheets on their Talk, Read & Sing initiative page are full of ways to enrich your childs early language experience and build on their natural curiosity in science and technology. Their Ready to Learn Television Resources page provides a list of educational websites and television programs for young children. You can also subscribe to a monthly newsletter to get stay informed.
