The children we nurture today will grow into the leaders who will guide our nation and world tomorrow. At the Children’s Learning Institute at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth, we work passionately to ensure they reach their full potential.
Children’s Learning Institute
The Children’s Learning Institute is the preeminent source for effective, evidence-based learning solutions. Each day, we seek to advance learning and health outcomes through public and private partnerships across the state and the nation in research, resource development, clinical services, and program delivery.
For over 30 years, experts at the Children’s Learning Institute have met the educational needs of children in Texas, providing children from at-risk populations with the support they need to succeed academically and ensuring children in communities throughout the state have opportunities to learn and excel.
Our research and programs are supported by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the National Institutes of Health, the US Department of Education, and the Institute of Education Sciences. This research goes into the community through our partnerships with the Texas Education Agency, Texas colleges and universities, school leaders, Texas legislators, childcare providers, and child advocacy groups—as well as through our own clinics. No similar or comparable center exists in Houston or the state of Texas.
Within and outside the walls of the Children’s Learning Institute, our scholars and specialists work tirelessly to create quality learning environments for all children—especially those at risk and most in need.
The Children’s Learning Institute will continue leading Texas in child development and education with your support for Many Faces. One Mission. Together, we can pave the way for even brighter futures for the next generation.
