With support from the Division of Child Care and Early Childhood Education at the Department of Human Services, Save the Children launched a new home visiting program in 2019 called Early Steps to School Success. Early Steps focuses on the five years before a child enters the formal education system as an important window of learning and enrichment. They provide home visits from birth to age three; parent support groups; referrals to center-based early childhood programs at age three; a book bag exchange until kindergarten entry; and a transition program to provide preschool and kindergarten support. Since its launch, Save the Children has partnered with 12 elementary schools in seven  counties and serves 216 children. It plans to expand to two more counties in the 2020-2021 school year to reach a total of 650 children.
