early childhood eduction

  If the US is to remain competitive in a rapidly changing global economy, bolstering the nation’s science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) workforce is essential, and STEM education plays a critical role in our country’s future. Partnership for Innovation in Education (PIE) promotes STEM education through experimental, digital, project-based and blended learning methods and hands-on applications.

  The ability to work as part of a team, build relationships, compromise, and adapt to change are skills formed during early childhood. United Way of Greater Cincinnati has partnered with the Devereux Center to create a system that measures social-emotional skills in young children, and last year completed assessments of over 4,600 students in our region.

Studies have shown the early childhood years are the most critical for the development of learning skills and proper social interaction. Those years can also be a challenge for parents and caregivers who want to provide children with the tools they need to succeed.
