Here in the Upstate Region of South Carolina, seven United Way organizations, serving 10 counties, have joined together to launch and support the Born Learning effort. Born Learning is designed as a tool for long-lasting community change that supports young children. It has three cornerstones: awareness about how young children learn; easy, fun, educational action steps that parents, grandparents and caregivers can use every day; and availability of research-driven products and tools for education outreach.
Born Learning Trails are being installed in Laurens County parks, and will provide a “value add” to our community. These trails offer outdoor learning games that build pre-literacy skills critical to school readiness
