Thank you, Educare OKC Capital Campaign Donors!
It all started with a dream and a belief that children deserve the best early childhood education possible. Driven by a desire to prepare infants and toddlers for school success, 10 years ago Sunbeam joined together with many community partners, including Inasmuch Foundation, to open the doors of Oklahoma’s first Educare.
“For me, it has been tremendous to look back and think what one school, what one cause, could do. I see a very long-term future here for something that is so critically important for our city and our state. In just the first decade of Educare OKC being available to families, Sunbeam has exported the best practice of early head start to more than 20 early childhood schools around OKC. Instead of only 120 students and their families benefitting from high-quality early care and education, now 680 students have access. Imagine what Educare OKC will accomplish in the next decade…the future is bright.” – Robert J. Ross, chairman and CEO of Inasmuch Foundation
