On behalf of the staff and Board of Directors of the Newark Trust for Education, I am proud to share our work with eighty-seven toddlers and their families as captured in the study, Forming Early Learning Habits: Newark ParentChild+ Families and Their Toddlers Redefine Their Homes as Learning Environments by our Senior Research and Evaluation Officer, Pritha Gopalan. ParentChild+ is a parenting and early learning program for parents, caregivers and their toddlers developed by Dr. Phyllis Levenstein, a clinical psychologist, in 1979.

  2. Support reading and play activities in the home;
  3. Build language, literacy, and learning-rich home environments; and
  4. Support the development of social-emotional skills so children enter school ready to be successful students.
