TIP Early Learning Network
With a generous three-year grant from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation, TIP and its partners have developed and supported an inter-district network focused on redesigning learning environments to better address the early learning needs of vulnerable children. In its first two years, the Early Learning Network (ELN) engaged school design teams and principals from 36 schools in 12 North Carolina districts. In its third year, the ELN built on the first two cohorts’ experiences by supporting participating district teams in designing innovative prototypes to respond to the pandemic’s impacts on early learning.
See below for more information on the prototype developed by Edgecombe County Public Schools as part of the third cohort of TIP’s Early Learning Network.

The Key to Community-Wide Success: Early Childhood Learning Programs
Have you seen a child’s eyes light up as they experience something new? It’s a magical moment, and life’s first four years are full of them.
These learning moments are about more than the joy—they can also ensure children start kindergarten on track, setting them up for a lifetime of success. That’s why early childhood learning programs are critical not just for our littlest learners, but for our entire community.
