At EarlystART, we believe a better future walks through our door every day. It all begins with embracing WONDER!


Just imagine a world where the boldest dreams are achievable and the possibilities are limitless. Do you see joy and wonder? Determination? A caring community? Friends and fun?


Lucky for Kansas City, it’s a world we seek to create each and every day at EarlystART! It is a magical place where creativity is inspired and opportunities are endless (oh, and crayons are bountiful!). Even more incredible is the power YOU hold to bring this life-changing mission to life for little learners and their families. Now the best part: you can make all of this happen just by  joining us for lunch this fall! 


EarlystART’s 4th annual Little Learners Luncheon is Friday, September 15th at the legendary GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium in the North Club, and we’re hoping you’ll consider joining us!


Be a Table Host. Be a Sponsor. Be a Champion for early learning!
