OUR KidsFirst! takes a two-pronged approach to solving the education crisis, first researching the best technologies and teaching techniques and then putting them to the test at our pilot sites. We currently operate pilot sites in NYC and are looking to expand. KidsFirst! is careful to test only the strategies that are scalable and replicable, so that we can take the lessons we learn in NYC to classrooms around the country.
