Our mission is to ensure that all children regardless of their race, socio-economic status, or zip code have equal possibilities from the start.
We work with families, caregivers, and communities to support not only early literacy and school readiness, but early opportunities.
It isn’t as easy as ABC. It is hard work. It is crucial work. We are inspired by the thought that the more we work together now to level the playing field, the closer we get to an equitable future for all children.
Our mission is urgent. Join us in ensuring that all of our children have equal possibilities from the start.
In the early 1960s, Dr. Phyllis Levenstein (August 23, 1916 – May 28, 2005), an educational psychologist studying at Columbia University, was asked to develop a program for families that would increase the number of high school graduates. After extensive research, she concluded that the most effective intervention would be to reach out to children before they even entered school. In fact, she determined that dropout prevention must begin with parents and in the home environment. Armed with this information, Dr. Levenstein developed the model for ParentChild+ (originally called The Mother-Child Home Program).Read More
In the mid-1960s Dr. Phyllis Levenstein, an educational psychologist and social worker was asked by a family service organization on Long Island to develop a program that would reduce the growing number of high school dropouts.
Based on growing research on the importance of the early years for developing critical language and early literacy skills and the value of parent-child interaction for building these skills, Dr. Levenstein decided to focus on working with families when their children were two and three.
Dr. Levenstein developed the ParentChild+ model (originally called the Verbal Interaction Project and the Mother-Child Home Program), which took a revolutionary new approach: reaching children and their parents at home, before they even enter school.
She designed the program to address four factors key to ensuring school success—and essential to giving children and their families the opportunity to thrive.
- Increases school readiness and school success
- Supporting reading and play activities in the home
- Building language, literacy, and learning-rich home environments
- Supporting the development of social-emotional skills so children enter school ready to be successful students.
Dr. Levenstein tested an array of variables while creating the program, including the number and duration of visits, giving families educational materials versus lending them, and one cycle vs. two. Through research and evaluation, she identified the most effective approach, which is the same key program elements implemented at all ParentChild+ sites today.
After a piloting and research phase, ParentChild+ was established as an independent nonprofit organization in 1979 to assist underserved communities replicate and expand Dr. Levenstein’s model. With our international network of sites, ParentChild+ reaches the hardest to reach, most isolated, under-resourced families in urban, suburban, and rural communities. Working with our local partner agencies, we carefully monitor the quality and impact of the Program in these communities.
Evaluating and tracking our impact is central to our work. Our data continues to demonstrate that ParentChild+:
- Increases school readiness
- Decreases the need for special education
- Significantly improves high school graduation rates.
ParentChild+ has reached over 70,000 families since it was founded and serves more than 7,000 families each year.
ParentChild+ is able to grow, thrive, and innovate due to the generous support of and rich collaboration with a wonderful, diverse array of partners in the US and overseas.
