Early Childhood Education


Early childhood education is the foundation of everything we do. We know that a quality early education is the “great equalizer” – the experience that can set a child, no matter his or her background, on the path to success.

If we can get it right in the first five years, it changes everything.

Through the Impact Fund, United Way is making a difference in the lives of children through the Success By 6® program and Healthy Parenting Initiative.

United Way's Education Agenda

For every dollar invested in quality early childhood education today, the return is up to $17 back into the community in saved special education costs, lower crime, increased earnings and taxes paid.
