OneSky creates affordable, scalable model early learning centers.
We train caregivers how to unlock the potential in marginalized young children. We show them how to provide not just early education, but also how to offer the consistent nurturing, responsive care that young children, from the moment of birth, need to develop normally.
Our solution goes beyond the children… we pay even more attention to training and transforming grownups. In fact, the changes we witness in children are miraculous, but no more so than those we see in the adults responsible for their welfare. When adults realize they have the power to turn a child’s life around, there is nothing more magical to behold. We’ve seen that light in the eyes of not just caregivers and teachers, but even the most staid government officials and business leaders. There is nothing we humans love more than bringing happiness to a child.
Everything we do depends on building positive partnerships. We foster partnerships among individuals, communities, businesses and governments at all levels, building local capacity by providing ongoing training, guidance and support as our partners (not us, but our partners) take our models to scale.
OneSky models can be adapted to meet challenges in diverse situations wherever young children live in adversity, particularly in developing countries. They don’t require fancy buildings or expensive toys. They do require human interaction, lots of it. And humans cost money.
But humans who are trained to enable vulnerable young children to reach their potential can become a workforce for good. A workforce that can change our world.
