Project REACH is a free and voluntary program available in select rural Missouri counties to support those who care for young children.

We are a research-based program designed to enhance the quality of early child care and education. Through ongoing on-site visits, we provide training, support and assistance to those who care for and teach young children.

Project REACH is a part of the Center for Family Policy and Research at the University of Missouri in Columbia.
