Children Enter School Ready to Succeed Thanks to First 5 San Bernardino
San Bernardino, CA – First 5 San Bernardino granted Arrowhead United Way (AUW) $100,000 to continue their Born Learning program. The program increases awareness in parents/caregivers about the importance of early learning and helps them engage their young children in learning during everyday activities to better prepare 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. The partnership between AUW and First 5 San Bernardino is to support children and families.
AUW is currently providing Born Learning workshops to the community. The next Born Learning workshop will take place on:
Tuesday, February 22, 2011 from 5:30 pm to 6:30pm
Norman F. Feldheym Library – Kellogg Room B
555 West 6th Street, San Bernardino, CA 92410
