On Thursday, October 30, 2014, Educational First Steps will host the 2nd annual One Childhood, One Chance Luncheon, featuring keynote speaker Bill Bradley. The event kicks off the 25th anniversary year for this North Texas nonprofit, which starts at-risk children on a path to success by helping their caregivers in neighborhood preschools and daycare centers to create high-quality early learning environments. The quintessential American hero and a strong advocate for early education, Bradley was a successful college athlete and Rhodes scholar who went on become an Olympic gold medal winner, a U.S. Senator and a thought leader on seeking solutions to America’s most pressing problems. He is also the author of “We Can All Do Better.”
To prepare at-risk children for school and life success, Educational First Steps improves the quality and availability of high-quality early learning environments. The North Texas-based nonprofit organization goes to the neighborhoods, daycare centers and homes where children in poverty are cared for and provides their caregivers with proven tools and techniques for teaching. Educational First Steps currently supports 370 classrooms and their teachers, building a foundation for lifelong learning for 4,000 children in Dallas and Tarrant Counties.
