In the spring of 2015, The Early Learning Lab was formed to source new approaches to making rapid and significant progress in the early learning field and in the lives of our youngest children.

Today, our team aims to develop and identify high impact solutions, whether they come from in or outside The Lab, and to share them broadly.  

The Lab is generously supported by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation other leading foundations focused on improving early childhood outcomes.

Early Learning Social Innovation



The Early Learning Lab works to ensure children’s healthy development and kindergarten readiness. We identify and spread smart innovations and technology solutions that equip parents, caregivers, and teachers with better ways to help children from birth to age 5, when it matters most.


We envision a world where all children are kindergarten-ready and on track to reach their full potential in school and in life.
