About Us

Early Childhood Educators work with children from birth to age 8, building the very foundations of their students' experiences with school and education. This foundation is often built on the backs of hard working, underpaid educators who often receive minimal support and opportunity for professional development. Engaged Early Education believes that by providing more support, professional development, resources, enrichment and experiences for early childhood educators, the better each and every program can become.


We want to help you provide a more integrated, STEAM rich program to your students. By prioritizing research backed learning experiences,  hands-on creative play, and building a classroom community, your early learners will feel loved, safe and can then build their curiosity and love of learning. 


Your teachers and your students deserve to have educators that feel supported through a variety of means. Engaged Early Education offers a variety of services for early childhood classrooms and administrators, such as:

Engaged Early Education is focused on three projects throughout 2024:​


If you are a child care provider, center, school or organization looking to expand into more integrative practices in the classroom, see our Current Services page to see if we can work together.


As an endeavor of The James Gang and registered non-profit 501(c)3 organization in the state of Iowa, Engaged Early Education believes in the power of community centered progress and education. In order to build the organization's efforts, reach and resources, some services require a donation for administrative costs and in building other offerings. We also regularly seek out corporate partnerships, grant opportunities and conduct fundraising campaigns. If your company or organization would like to sponsor services or programs for an area child care facility, school or program, please contact me to discuss earmarking donations for this purpose. 

Engaged Early Childhood prioritizes LGBTQIA+ inclusion alongside anti-bias and anti-racist education practices and believes that all children, of all abilities, deserve a positive, caring educational environment.
