Along with our community partners, United Way is working to strengthen early childhood education and improve grade level reading. Our existing birth to eight programming is known for enhancing test scores, improving school readiness, and providing parents information about their role in helping their children develop during the critical early years. Children who attend high-quality early education are more likely to read at grade level by third grade, which increases the likelihood of graduating high school, attending college and being equipped for the workforce.
