Mission & Goals

Our Mission


Early Edge California works to ensure all children have the early experiences necessary to be successful learners by the end of 3rd grade, setting them on a path to college and career readiness.

Our Goals


With college and career readiness as the ultimate goal, we must identify the skills and abilities children need to get there, and then advance policies and allocate resources proven proven to support children in acquiring them. We focus our policy development and advocacy on the earliest and most foundational steps on the path to college and careers – from birth to 3rd grade

We must make a collective commitment to focus on three key benchmarks for school success: 

Children are successful learners at the end of 3rd grade
Third graders are proficient or attain a mastery of English Language Arts and Math.
