Fulton County's Local Education And Resource Network
Fulton County’s Local Education And Resource Network (LEARN) is currently comprised of individuals from the community including businesses, school district personnel, parents and early learning practitioners who have come together to provide and share information on the importance of expanding and improving quality early learning in Fulton County. We are funded through the Office of Child Development and Early Learning. The goals of this grant are to:
1. Effectively communicate with and engage families:
a. Assist families to act as their child's first educator, with information about child development and appropriate early learning activities, aligned with the early learning standards;
b. Help families make good early learning choices for their children, while building family demand for quality early education;
c. Support families to take action on behalf of their children.
2. Provide support to families with a child transitioning into an early learning setting or those with children entering kindergarten.
3. Act as a resource for early childhood education to promote OCDEL programs, such as Keystone STARS, through activities such as early learning events, early learning activities and/or other programs within a community which focus on quality early education programs and access to early learning opportunities.
Studies have shown that what a child learns in the first five years of life will have an impact, not only on their success in school, but on their achievements later in life. For more information, please contact Jamie Taylor at 717-485-5038 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
