Preparing Kids for School in Polk, Hardee & Highlands Counties
UWCF’s Early Childhood Education Initiative helps children to enter school ready to read.
Help us give all children a fighting chance to succeed in school and in life.
Less than 50% of Polk County’s kindergarten students pass the school readiness assessment. Children who start behind, stay behind. Students who enter kindergarten passing the school readiness assessment are more likely to learn to read at grade level, pass 3rd grade standardized tests and graduate on time.
Working with local experts in early education, UWCF established standards for early literacy services, age-appropriate curricula and assessments.
preschoolers improved early literacy skills.
early childhood staff trained to provide quality programs.
