Born Learning Academics
Born Learning Academies use proven tips, tools and resources to help families take a more active role in preparing their children ages 0-5 for kindergarten. Through a series of six free workshops held in local schools, a Born Learning Academy provides families and caregivers with practical, user-friendly ideas to turn everyday activities into learning moments. Programs include a family-friendly meal, prizes, and fun hands-on activities. Each workshop is led by trained professionals—usually teachers, principals or other education staff—and focuses on topics including Building Your Child’s Language Skills, Nutrition and Health, How Children Learn, and Routines and Learning on the Go. There are no income restrictions to qualify for the program, as we believe all children should have the opportunity to develop school-readiness skills regardless of their family circumstances. A gift of $7,500 will allow LaRue County to operate a Born Learning Academy for a year.
