FirstSchool is part of a national PreK-3rd movement of schools, districts, educators and universities seeking to improve how children from ages 3 to 8 learn and develop in schools. While these different projects use a variety of names, all are working to connect high-quality PreK programs with high-quality elementary schools. FirstSchool is committed to a set of values and an inquiry approach to systemic change in school. These values and an approach to change are described in this paper. (Contains 6 notes.)
