United Way-Supported Early Education Programs Prepare Kids for Kindergarten

A child’s future academic success is greatly impacted by the early education they get during their first five years of life.

At United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley, we help over 700 kids access early childhood education at programs like The Learning Center at Third Street Alliance for Women and Children in Easton.

With the help of United Way supporters, The Learning Center gets children like Madison, Colson and Maddison excited about reading and helps them thrive in literacy and comprehension.

Thanks to donors like you, 91% of children served in United Way-supported early education programs are ready for kindergarten.
