Investing in Milwaukee’s greatest resource

Research shows that we can have the greatest impact for at risk children from birth to age 5. Children at this age learn quickly because the brain is developing at its most rapid pace. Children who fall behind at this stage rarely catch up. The Next Door Experience provides award-winning, educational programming and critical wrap-around services to close the gap.

Early Childhood Education Works

Graduates of a high-quality Pre-K program are:

  • More likely to be proficient in reading by third grade
  • More likely to graduate from high school and attend college
  • More likely to succeed in the work place

By working together, our students will have a bright future ahead of them.
