Program addresses early learning potential of children
Seven United Ways, including Oconee County, have launched an effort to help maximize the early learning potential of children. “Born Learning Upstate SC” is a public engagement campaign to help parents, caregivers and communities provide children with quality learning opportunities. The campaign is built on research that shows children are “born learning.” Oconee United Way has installed Born Learning Trails in Westminster, at Anderson Park; in Walhalla, at Sertoma Field; and will dedicate a third trail Thursday, April 10 at Seneca’s Shaver Recreation Complex. Lisa Fields and reading mentors have taught classes and led workshops in Oconee elementary schools.
