All children cared for, nurtured and ready to learn! That is what brought many of us together in 1995 and that is still what motivates us twenty years later. Rockland 21C is a true collaborative effort of family, school, community, government with children as its priority.

Initially working with Dr. Edward Zigler of Yale University, one of the founders of Head Start, we were grounded in the basics of early learning and family support. We then adapted his Schools of the 21st Century Program to our suburban county. Rockland 21C is now known nationally to be a suburban model of community schools by linking schools to services.
