Teaching Strategies Cares

Teaching Strategies Cares (TS Cares) is a voluntary, employee-led group creating community service opportunities for our employees. Past events include coat drives, book drives, food drives, as well as outfitting select private childcare facilities with free curriculum resources.

TS Cares is focused on impacting children and families in our local communities by providing them with some of the necessary resources to be successful in life.


Teaching Strategies surveyed 2,200 early childhood educators to gain insights on workforce conditions and trending topics like science of reading. Among the key findings, only 28% of early childhood educators said they feel "very prepared" to teach early literacy, and 39% of early childhood educators are "not familiar at all" with the science of reading. Respondents seek more resources, training, and family engagement to build early literacy skills in young learners.
