Caplan Foundation for Early Childhood
09/29/19 - Receipt by email
Grants to USA nonprofit organizations for research and development projects aimed to enhance the welfare of infants and children up to age 7. Funding is intended to support early childhood play and education, early childhood welfare, and parenting education.
Welfare is broadly defined to include physical and mental health, safety, nutrition, education, play, familial support, acculturation, societal integration, and childcare.
Caplan Foundation for Early Childhood Grants are only made if a successful project outcome will likely be of significant interest to other professionals, within the grantee’s field of endeavor, and would have a direct benefit and potential national application. The Foundation’s goal is to provide seed money to implement those imaginative proposals that exhibit the greatest chance of improving the lives of young children, on a national scale. The Foundation provides funding in the following areas:
Early Childhood Welfare:
- Children can only reach their full potential when all aspects of their intellectual, emotional and physical development are optimally supported. Providing a safe and nurturing environment is essential as is imparting the skills of social living in a culturally diverse world. Therefore, the Foundation supports projects that seek to perfect child-rearing practices and identify models that can provide creative, caring environments in which young children thrive.
Early Childhood Education and Play:
- Research shows that children need to be stimulated as well as nurtured, early in life, if they are to succeed in school, work and life. That preparation relates to every aspect of a child’s development, from birth to age seven, and everywhere a child learns – at home, in childcare settings and in preschool. The Foundation seeks to improve the quality of both early childhood teaching and learning, through the development of innovative curricula and research-based pedagogical standards, as well as the design of imaginative play materials and learning environments.
- To help parents create nurturing environments for their children, The Foundation supports programs that teach parents about developmental psychology, cultural child-rearing differences, pedagogy, issues of health, prenatal care and diet, as well as programs which provide both cognitive and emotional support to parents.
