The Early Math Initiative
A national initiative to help federal and state-funded preschool programs enhance mathematical development and learning in young children.
We are currently accepting participants for our second cohort!
What is EMI?
A national training network and instructional support system for federal or state-funded preschool programs with additional enhancements for learning in the home.
There are two primary goals of the EMI: 1) to scale the implementation of the Pre-K Mathematics Curriculum nationally and 2) to develop regional training networks to assist programs with their implementation through a sustainable continuous improvement plan.

Early Childhood STEM Institute
This hands-on and interactive session included information on young children’s early mathematical development and empowered educators and home visitors to support children’s math learning in both virtual and in person settings. Center-based educators and home visitors learned the fundamentals of mathematical reasoning and gained confidence in their ability to engage children and families in STEM related activities. Upon completion of the session educators and home visitors received access to a master set of activities for future use either virtual or in person settings.
