Improve the odds of success for children as they grow from cradle to career.
Not every student comes to school ready and able to learn. How well children are prepared to learn begins before they are even born. What happens between the ages of zero and three will affect them for the rest of their lives.
For Children to succeed, they must have:
- Good health care while mom is still pregnant;
- A safe home and community that supports and provides activities that encourage learning;
- Parents and caregivers with the information and experience to support development and readiness to learn;
- Community support when something happens that may have a negative impact on their health, education, or family’s ability to pay for food, shelter and other basic needs
Because children begin learning the day they are born, The PNI plans to provide parents, caregivers and community members with tools to help children learn as much as they can everyday.
