what is bama talks?
Bama Talks believes that when we invest in children early, our entire community wins. Our evidence based curriculum and cutting edge technology work together to increase the number of words children hear from adult caregivers. In partnership with the Alabama Department of Early Childhood Education, we're making that innovation available (at no cost) to communities across the state. Apply below to join us in making sure every child in Alabama is kindergarten, college, and career ready.
