Margie Carter and Deb Curtis founded HARVEST RESOURCES in 1994 as a partnership to inspire early care providers and educators to engage fully in their own learning. When teachers become thoughtful, competent decision makers, they take leadership to transform and advance the profession.

Michael Gramling's new book, "The Great Disconnect in Early Childhood Education: What We Know vs. What We Do," offers a provocative examination of the drivers and unintended consequences of current early childhood policies and practices. His thoughtful analysis and carefully-chosen stories will help you reflect on existing problems and take action towards educational reform that truly meets the needs of all young children.

In a time of standardization and prescription, Harvest Resources Associates stands for creative and critical thinking.
  • We believe teachers and children deserve to be emotionally and intellectually engaged with each other in learning
  • We believe teachers deserve the time and resources to nourish their hearts and challenge their thinking
  • We believe that training and resources should actively engage teachers in reflective practices that bring theory to life and real life to theory
  • We believe seeking diverse perspectives is central to education for democracy
