What If Nobody Had Cared? (Steve)

What If Nobody Had Cared?  (Steve)
Giving children attention gives children opportunity: to grow confidence and feel safe doing it, to learn about the world and all it can offer, and to develop health for a lifetime. But too often, kids don’t get what they need. They “fall through the cracks” and “slip through the system.” We can change that. Working together with supporters like you around the world, the Steve Nash Foundation is growing health in kids by implementing initiatives premised on the idea that children matter.

“Kindergarten readiness”? Get ready for me.

“Kindergarten readiness”?  Get ready for me.
What exactly does "kindergarten readiness" mean? The goal of Educare Arizona is to ensure that all children come to their first day of kindergarten well-fed, rested, healthy, read and sung to, nurtured, and excited to learn. It means buildings ready to receive kids that want to play and run and imagine, and classrooms that inspire creativity. It means communities that take pride in local schools and community members that see the school as a resource. Kindergarten readiness? Let’s get started. (view small | med | large | orig)

What Are You Looking At?

What Are You Looking At?
At the Steve Nash Foundation, we believe in looking at children in the very best light possible - using the most current science to understand what makes new minds and bodies as healthy as they can be. With Educare Arizona, we’re bringing best practices in early childhood education to at-risk children and their families, right from the start. Teacher training, public policy, health services, outreach, and a center of excellence to give our children the assist they need to keep amazing us. (view small | med | large | orig)

A Place For Every Child

A Place For Every Child
At the Steve Nash Foundation, we believe that income shouldn't dictate access; that a child born into poverty has no less right to have a quality education from birth than a child born into wealth; that all children deserve every bit of care we can deliver to them. Educare Arizona gives the best we have to children and families that need it. With a sustainably-built center that’s easy to access, a neighborhood health and dental clinic, and help for parents, that's a good place to be. (view small | med | large | orig)

Early Childhood Doesn’t Just Mean a 4a.m. Wake-Up

Early Childhood Doesn’t Just Mean a 4a.m. Wake-Up
How does your day start? Routines are an important part of a baby’s development – routine tells a child that he has security, that he’s part of a plan for the day, and that he can count on the people around him. Whether it’s a song, or a smile, or a few minutes spent reading together, encouraging routines during the day is an easy way to aid a baby’s brain and physical growth. . . one little step at a time.

Ever Wonder What I'll Learn?

Ever Wonder What I'll Learn?
Kids are natural learners – they smile, they wonder, they laugh, and they do it all without being taught how. Giving them a safe and healthy environment in which to learn means they can explore a world without limitations. Educare Arizona will be a state-of-the-art center for early learning, complete with age-appropriate classrooms, designated art and outdoor play space, a learning kitchen, a health and dental clinic, a community “piazza” and resource room . . . and plenty of room to wonder.

A Platform For Change

A Platform For Change
Based on findings from leading research studies, Educare puts science into practice to provide the highest quality care for at-risk infants, toddlers, preschoolers and their families. With a growing network of Educare sites across the country poised to impact public policy on early learning – each site informs the others, as curriculum and best practices are constantly developed - Educare Arizona isn’t just a place. It’s a new paradigm for early learning and a catalyst for policy change. (view small | med | large | orig)

Sharing a Love of Reading

Sharing a Love of Reading
When kids access quality early learning programs before school, they learn to learn, learn to love learning, and learn to be learners. (view small | med | large | orig)

Making an Assist

Making an Assist
When a child is healthy (nurtured and read to and loved and sung to and paid attention to right from birth) it’s not only his or her trajectory that changes . . . when we care about young kids, the world changes. More about our work is at stevenash.org — get in on our twitter, too, @the_real_nash. (view small | med | large | orig)
