Health and Welfare Initiatives for Young Children Funded
Caplan Foundation for Early Childhood
The Caplan Foundation for Early Childhood supports nonprofit organizations that offer programs that will significantly enhance the development, health, safety, education, or quality of life of children from infancy through five years of age. The Foundation's areas of interest include the following: The Early Childhood Welfare category supports programs that research best child rearing practices and identify models that can provide caring environments to ensure all children thrive. The Early Childhood Education and Play category focuses on improving the quality of both early childhood teaching and learning through the development of innovative curricula and research-based pedagogical standards, as well as the design of imaginative play materials and learning environments. The Parenting Education category promotes programs that teach parents about developmental psychology, cultural child rearing differences, and health, and also programs which provide support to parents. Letters of inquiry are accepted throughout the year. Visit the Foundation’s website to learn more about the application process.
