i3 – We Are A Village


We Are A Village is a collaboration with the Central Falls School District, LEA; Children’s Friend, a local nonprofit; Bradley Early Childhood Clinical Research Center (Bradley), a clinical service and professional training agency, and part of the Bradley Hasbro Children’s Research Center; and the Annenberg Institute for School Reform (AISR), a national policy research and reform support organization at Brown University.

Village focuses on improving school readiness and academic achievement of young, high-need children, from preschool to third grade, by using the research-based Head Start Parent, Family, and Community Engagement (PFCE) Framework to shape our parent and family engagement strategies as well as embedding the evidence-based IY Teacher Classroom Management and IY BASIC Parenting Programs within the project’s schools to implement a three-tiered approach of prevention, identification, and intervention to support children’s social and emotional competencies.
