Opening Up Access to Early Childhood Education with Chris Bennett

Chris Bennett is the CEO and Co-Founder of Wonderschool, an education company whose mission is to ensure that every child has access to early education that helps them realize their potential. He joins host Mike Palmer in a conversation about the critical role early childhood education can play in unlocking opportunities for children who need it.

We learn what led Chris to found Wonderschool prior to the pandemic and how he and team weathered the transformations of recent years. We also learn what it’s like to present on the TED stage coming off of Chris’s recent appearance there. Chris shares how his experience with home-based childcare was transformative to him and how he’s built Wonderschool to enable pathways to caregivers interested in building their own programs while scaling access to care in so-called childcare deserts.

It’s a thought-provoking conversation that you don’t want to miss.
