First 5 San Bernardino granted Arrowhead United Way (AUW) $100,000 to continue their Born Learning program.

The program increases awareness in parents/ caregivers about the importance of early learning and helps them engage their young children in learning during everyday activities to better prepare them for school. The program also provides information to parents/ caregivers about the developmental stages and health needs of young children.

Research shows that disadvantage children come into school years behind their peers in pre-literacy skills, and rarely catch up. The partnership between AUW and First 5 San Bernardino is to support children and families.

AUW is currently providing Born Learning workshops to the community. The next Born Learning workshop will take place on: Monday, March 21st, 2011 from 5:30 pm to 6:30pm, Norman F. Feldheym Library, 555 West 6th Street, San Bernardino, CA 92410.

For more information about the Born Learning program or if you would like to attend a workshop, please contact Chris Alonso at (909) 884-9441 or ChrisA@ahuw.org.
