This year marks Educare’s 10th anniversary. Since opening our doors, Educare has been guided by our mission of eliminating the opportunity gap for young children experiencing poverty in Washington, DC, and helping them build the skills necessary for success in kindergarten and beyond. As we look back on the last decade, we are proud of our top quality program, our expanded impact in the community, and our organizational stability. This year, Educare DC is celebrating those accomplishments and looking forward to growing the future with you.


We could not have achieved this impact or done this crucial work without every one of our staff, parents, board members, partners and donors. Over the course of our 10th year, we will have multiple opportunities for our community to come together to help celebrate our collective achievements. See our media page for more pictures!
