& EARLY EDUCATION
Research shows that low‐income children gain a dramatically greater chance for emotional, social, financial and cognitive success if they are provided high-quality educational opportunities at a very early age. GKFF supports early childhood education initiatives, as well as continued support for children and families, to ensure each child reaches his or her full potential.
“Every child can realize America’s promise of equal opportunity given the right start. Simple activities like reading together, singing along with the radio, and other playful interactions engage young children in learning throughout the day. We know that everyday actions make a profound impact on a baby’s educational development and well‐being.”
— George B. Kaiser
Education is one of the key mechanisms for providing equal opportunity to every child in Tulsa. Starting early sets a solid foundation, but there is also need for continued support for children (PreK‐12) after the age of three in our schools.
