What is Born Learning Academy? 

The Born Learning Academy, funded by Toyota Motor Manufacturing West Virginia, creates opportunities for families of young children to connect with local schools during the critical period of early learning prior to school enrollment. As part of the program, families participate in six engaging academies where they learn how to create teachable moments with their children. In 2018-19, nearly 200 parents and caregivers from 11 schools came together to participate in hands-on activities and discussions about what it means to be ready for kindergarten and how they can implement strategies to maximize their child’s early learning and development. The Born Learning Academy is continuing to empower families to create a better future for their children.
