Early Start Discovery Space

Early Start is a new way of thinking about how the resources, the intellectual capital of a university and the rich body of research available can be put in direct contact with the community, and how technology can be part of the solution to bring about better outcomes for children.

Early Start supports and enhances the ways in which people care for and work with children and engages with parents and communities to support the environments in which children can grow.
