The Early Years Project: Supporting Caregivers of Young Children

The Early Years Project supports children (infants through preschool) by working with their early childhood educators and families. Our child development specialists work with child care centers and family childcare providers to create welcoming communities for all children, and to address the needs of individual and/or groups of children about whom providers have concerns.

We collaborate with educators and families to understand the child and to support the child in the classroom and at home. We reflect on teaching practices, routines, curriculum, and the environment to promote well-being, healthy development, and learning. We share articles, handouts, and resources, and help with referrals for specialized services.

Our work is strengths-based and grounded in respect of the cultural norms practiced within each center and family. We have Spanish and English-speaking specialists on our team. Our services are offered free of charge to any childcare center or family childcare provider in the City of Cambridge. The Early Years Project is a collaboration that includes Riverside Community Care, the City of Cambridge, Birth to 3rd Grade Partnership, Cambridge Public Schools, and the Cambridge Health Alliance.
