Collaborative for Children

FROM THE Child Care
Early Learning. Long-Term Success.
Our programs connect families to early learning opportunities, build highly skilled early childhood educators to improve outcomes for children, and advocate for birth-to-five policies that close the achievement gap. We know that early learning is the key to long-term success not just for Houston’s children but for our entire community.
We Live Our Core Values, Every Day
At Collaborative for Children, our core values are at the heart of everything we do. They’re more than aspirational attributes – they’re actionable statements that shape how we see our work and how we make a difference in early childhood education. Our core values are truly who we are.

Every Child Deserves The Right Start.

Our vision is for all children in Greater Houston to have the high-quality early learning opportunities they need. So we’ve made it our mission for 30 years to make that happen. At Collaborative for Children, we meaningfully improve the quality of early childhood education and care for Greater Houston’s children through those who are most influential in their lives.
