Our Passion for Early Learning Programs & the Industry’s Newest Solution, Meet Earlybird.

Our Passion for Early Childhood Education

Provisio Partners has a passion for early childhood education, and we’ve worked with educational organizations and nonprofits since day one.  We understand the unique processes, common challenges and proven solutions that help these organizations operate more efficiently and accomplish their missions because our team members have ‘first-hand, real world experience’. ​​

Combined, our team has over 50 years of experience in early childhood, including teaching for local early Head Start programs, overseeing Family Engagement and Enrollment for Early Learning programs, setting strategic policy direction for state-wide early childhood programs and universal city-wide programs, managing Early Learning Councils and stakeholder groups, and more! 

Supportive Technology Specifically Built for Early Childhood Programs

Understanding the incredibly difficult obstacles early childhood and educational programs face, we set-out on a mission to develop a solution that would automate processes, making program and family engagement workers’ lives easier, while also impacting the lives they’re serving within their communities. 

Now, we support early childhood programs across the country to reach their goals with a solution specifically built to help young learners and their families. Earlybird can help Head Start programs to run operations efficiently, report on impact, and ensure compliance with Head Start standards.
