Grant of $10,000 to a Rochester, New York nonprofit organization for early-childhood programs that benefit the children of the City. Funding is intended to maintain and improve early-learning programs and promote a high standard of care for Rochester children from birth to age eight, with an emphasis on high-needs children and their families.

Funding priorities are for innovative projects that enhance the knowledge and skills of caregivers and teachers, improve the quality of their teaching and interactions with children, and produce measurable positive outcomes for children.

Examples of strategies that will be considered are projects that will:
- Improve the interaction of families, care providers, and teachers to create learning-rich environments that stimulate children’s curiosity, exploration and independence;
- Create specialized early childhood and child development training for teachers, child providers as well as other professionals and education leaders that fill a needed gap;
- Design and test new approaches, practices, interventions that support children’s social/emotional, physical, or language skills; or
- Create and evaluate new professional development opportunities that utilize nontraditional approaches (i.e. modules, online learning, and collaborative learning).
