The New E3 School:  Innovation at Work

Our school is a state-of-the-art, mixed-income model for children ages one to five.  Our school is a catalyst for policy change in the region and state.  We have proven that when all children have access to quality, they enter kindergarten ready academically and socially.

Our Results:

  • High quality is consistent and strong in every classroom (CLASS, 2021).
  • Most children met or exceeded the benchmarks in literacy, math and self-regulation.
  • All children across socioeconomic backgrounds needed more support with social skills. 
  • Most of our children are ready for kindergarten academically and socially (VKRP, 2021).

The STREAMin3 Pilot and Expansion

E3, funded and worked alongside UVA to develop the STREAMin3 curricula model for children ages one to five in our school.  Our goal was to ensure that the curriculum, professional development, coaching and assessment model could be replicated have an impact beyond The New E3 School.

E3’s team advocated in 2019  for state and private funds to pilot the model voluntarily in 112 early learning classrooms (faith-based, Head Start, private programs and The Virginia Preschool Initiative).  Results from the pilot proved that the model is replicable and scalable. 

The STREAMin3 model is now on VDOE’s list of approved curriculum for infants, toddlers and preschoolers.  One of our Batten-Minor Challenge Policy Initiatives has moved forward to impact more children.

The Virginia Department of Education is providing voluntary access to comprehensive early childhood curriculum STREAMin3 that was developed in The New E3 School by UVA with funding from E3:Elevate Early Education. The STREAMin3 curriculum model is available to all birth to five publicly funded classrooms. Learn more about how to get the curriculum.

The Challenge

  • 42% of Virginia’s children are NOT READY.
  • The achievement and readiness gaps begin in the early years and widen without intervention.

The Solution

  • High quality early learning can close the achievement and readiness gaps.
  • Equitable access to high quality early education prepares ALL children academically and socially.
