The United Way Born Learning Academy program, funded by Toyota Motor Manufacturing, WV, Inc. and The Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation, connects schools with families of young children during the critical period of early learning (birth to PreK) prior to school enrollment. Families participate in “academy” trainings where they learn how to create teachable moments for their children. The program will expand to 3-6 more schools in 2017-2018. Interested schools should submit applications by January 16, 2017.

In West Virginia, we believe every child can learn. Research shows children begin learning at birth and the first and most important educators our children have in their lives are their parents. The United Way Born Learning Academy encourages parents make the most of that opportunity, and supports a collaborative approach to early childhood development.
