Buffett Early Childhood Institute at the University of Nebraska

The vision of the Buffett Early Childhood Institute is that Nebraska will become the best place in the nation to be a baby.


Our mission is to transform the lives of young children by improving their learning and development.

We bring together those who are working to improve early childhood education and development. We serve as a catalyst for change and provide a unified vision and common approach for how we can work together to improve children’s learning and development.

We partner with schools, communities, policymakers, and others to share – and apply – the best of what is known about early childhood development. We serve as a bridge to resources and information for parents, providers, and the public. We communicate what we know to improve the lives of vulnerable young children and their families.

At the Buffett Institute, we believe we have an extraordinary opportunity to work with others to transform the early life experiences of children from birth through age 8. We focus especially on children living in poverty, those growing up under conditions of high stress and familial challenge, and children with developmental delays. We devote ourselves to: research, practice, policy, and outreach.
