Brief Program Description

In Savannah, Georgia, we have been learning how to enhance the ability of families to create an environment in which learning thrives for children and their parents. Adults and children gain ownership of the learning process by engaging parents and families in the creation of a space where they can participate in the building and sustaining the elements that lead to their success.
