We are dedicated to closing early onset achievement gaps by providing programming to boost preschool enrollment and kindergarten readiness
In collaboration with Boulder Housing Partners, our Summer Shuffle program brings summer literacy and numeracy instruction to 3, 4 and 5 year olds living in public housing in Boulder County during summer months. Family engagement is a big part of this work with the goal of boosting preschool enrollment and improving kindergarten readiness. We achieved 100% preschool enrollment among participants in 2019.
- Parent and family engagement for children from birth through third grade is a critical part of our early childhood education work. We work with parents and caregivers through regular Family Nights to promote cultures of literacy at home and to support preschoolers’ social-emotional growth.
