Big Ideas, Little Learners: A new report on current early childhood megatrends and how early learning could look in the future

January 9, 2019

Despite major improvements in practices for young children and families in the past 50 years, early childhood remains massively under-invested in the US relative to other nations and to other age groups. Early childhood educators and programs are underfunded relative to the needs, leaving too many children and families behind. 

While we absolutely must increase public funding for evidence-based solutions, such as quality pre-K programs, Early Head Start and home visitation programs, and increase the compensation and stature of the early childhood workforce, we at Omidyar Network also believe that we need to attract entrepreneurial and leadership talent to the early childhood field along with innovation-focused capital to ultimately increase the supply of quality solutions.

With our release of Big Ideas, Little Learners: Early Childhood Trends Report, we hope to showcase megatrends driving new demand and supply in early childhood education with the hope that it will ignite even more conversations, ideas, actions, and energy into the space.
