Increase public demand for school readiness 

Get Involved!

FACT: Infants, toddlers and preschoolers who have high-quality early childhood experiences are more likely to thrive later on. Investing early pays off for children, for families and for all of us.

Our Public Will-Building Team of business, civic and non-profit leaders are spreading the word about the importance of investing early as a strategy to build a strong current and future workforce within Guilford County.

North Carolina CEO’s are taking this message to the boardroom and to the NC General Assembly. And a 2016 poll shows that a majority of North Carolinians — regardless of political affiliation — want more investment in early learning because the benefits are clear.

It’s going to take everyone in order to achieve our community’s ambitious goals of each child ready for Kindergarten. Contact Mary to learn more and to get connected to this work.
