About Us - Early Learning Nation

About Us

Early Learning Nation is an independent magazine devoted to early learning (0-5 years), reporting on groundbreaking research, early learning policy and best practices in the field.

Our mission

Early Learning Nation magazine creates journalism from, and for, the early learning field. Our journalists have unique access and insights to the challenges and successes of all-things-early-childhood, and we publish stories that support policymakers, researchers, scientists, advocates and families in creating equitable and groundbreaking work in their communities and lives.

With the shuttering of independent news providers over the last five years, and the loss of so many education and early childhood beats in the outlets that do remain, our communities are hungry for information—and connection.

Early Learning Nation magazine publishes work from all over this complex landscape, including:

  • Groundbreaking research from the science of the developing brain

  • Case studies in policy and advocacy that demonstrate winning strategies

  • Interviews and deep dives with authors, practitioners and innovators

  • And so much more.

You can follow along with our work by signing up for our monthly newsletter, joining us on Substack, following us on LinkedIn and other social media, or viewing our interviews from our pop-up Early Learning Nation Studio on our YouTube channel. We’re glad you’re here.
