Founded in 2007, ECARE’s mission is to maximize children’s potential through increased school readiness. Our vision is very simple: Every student starts kindergarten ready to learn. These guiding principles keep us focused on interventions targeting Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten students that demonstrate results toward kindergarten readiness.
ECARE has focused our efforts in high need areas of Pensacola to improve kindergarten readiness by concentrating efforts on children, their parents and guardians and early education providers. Through Project Ready, ECARE enlists ReadingPals volunteers to work individually with pre-kindergarten students, supports family involvement efforts and connects community resources with our education partners.
