The A.D. Henderson Foundation supports early learning for children ages birth to eight in the state of Vermont and Broward County, Florida. In Vermont, we also seek to build the capacity of nonprofit organizations, primarily focusing on early education and adult to child mentoring.
We wanted to join an affinity group of like minded peers who were taking a lead in enhancing the systems that support early care and education. We need to test and validate the good work we are already doing and incorporate the learning of what’s working well for our other partners around the country.
Our vision for early childhood is that is that every child ages 0-8 in the State of Vermont and Broward County Florida has high quality early learning opportunities and experiences so that all young children have the intellectual, social, and emotional foundations necessary to be successful.
