High Five at 129
The High 5s project is part of the Robin Hood Early Childhood Research Initiative, a partnership between MDRC and the Robin Hood Foundation focused on improving the life trajectories of low-income children in New York City. The Initiative’s first project, Making Pre-K Count (MPC), was designed to improve pre-k math instruction using the Building Blocks curriculum. The High 5s program enhancement is designed to provide an additional, crucial boost in MPC children’s kindergarten math skills, serving as a bridge to math instruction in first grade and beyond.
