The Hawai'i P-3 Initiative
Early Childhood Education Sets the Foundation for Lifelong Learning
A child’s early years are critical in establishing a strong foundation for education. The Hawai‘i P-3 Initiative, supported by generous grants from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the Harold K.L. Castle Foundation, the Samuel N. and Mary Castle Foundation, and Kamehameha Schools, establishes partnerships with early learning providers to promote a cohesive continuum of experiences from birth to age eight. Through the lessons learned by these partnerships, the P-3 Initiative is able to improve the alignment and integration of programs, strengthening the Hawai‘i P-20 educational pipeline.
