Kindergarten Readiness - Our Strategy

By focusing on the early years, we can provide the foundation for lifelong academic success.  The first few years of a child's education are the most important as the Columbus Area United Way seeks to ensure all children are ready to learn when they enter kindergarten. 

Under the Education Pillar, funded partners and direct programs will focus on:

  • Expanded learning opportunities
  • Before and after school programs
  • Student Attendance
  • Parents being engaged in their child's education
  • Fostering hope for a successful future
