Arrowhead United Way’s Born Learning program Children Enter School Ready to Succeed
San Bernardino, CA – Arrowhead United Way’s (AUW) Born Learning program focuses on language and pre-literacy skills as they are the cornerstone of success in work, school and life. Born Learning helps promote awareness about the importance of early learning and aides parents/caregivers to engage their young children in learning during everyday activities to assist in preparing them for school. The program also provides information to parents/caregivers about the developmental stages and health needs of young children. Research shows that disadvantage children come into school years behind their peers in pre-literacy skills, and rarely catch up.
Program participants receive learning materials and books to assist in promoting early learning. The Born Learning program is free to the community thanks to the partnership between AUW and First 5 of San Bernardino.
AUW is currently providing Born Learning workshops to the community. The next Born Learning workshop will take place on:
□ Monday, May 9th, 2011 from 5:30 pm to 6:30pm
