Early Starters International was founded by experts who have over 30 years of experience in the education system in Israel. Our team includes a network of early childhood education specialists skilled in program design and development in collaboration with local partners, led and sustained by the community. We have taken lessons learned and cutting-edge knowledge from the Israeli education system and apply it to diverse communities across the globe. Our goal is to make early childhood education playful and intentional – with an eye to resilience building, community building and innovation. Our expertise is to work in poor communities with diverse children and those from high risk families to close their achievement gap in the classroom though intentional curricula and effective and tested methods where children learn numeracy, literacy and life skills in preschool, with an eye to the future.
