About Us

Our Mission

Early Intel’s mission is to improve outcomes for young children and families, by supporting program leaders with data and professional development. We accomplish this through a three part strategy:

  • Organize the metrics and analytics that enable programs to understand their quality opportunities; 
  • Provide training and support for programs to implement continuous quality improvement; and
  • Facilitate and staff a learning community of program leaders to identify bright spots and advance the practice of CQI.

Programs collect a wealth of data. Early Intel provides the analytics, processes and support to mine this treasure and to act on it to improve the lives of children and families.

Our Values


Care and commitment to children, families, and the staff serving them is at the foundation of our work.


Alongside the programs we serve, we are always asking “how can we improve child and family outcomes?”


We work to ensure that every child participates in high quality education and services, regardless of family income, language, culture or disability.
