From Neurons to Neighborhoods: The Science of Early Childhood Development
Please join Women United for lunch and hear from passionate and dedicated professionals and educators about the state’s pilot preschool program, On My Way Pre-K, and how it is an important beginning for children in Central Indiana that impacts their futures, as well as the future of our community.
The On My Way Pre-K program is winding up the registration process that will make it possible for over 1,500 kids ages three and four to attend preschool for the first time. This pilot program serves low-income families in Marion County who qualify for scholarships, but have not been able to secure a child care voucher in the past. Over 12,000 children in Marion County attend child care programs using these vouchers, and there are currently over 1,200 eligible children on the voucher waiting list.
Tickets are $20 and include lunch. 50% of the proceeds from each ticket sold will be donated to Women United’s Literacy Kit project.
Featured speakers for this event include:
Ann Murtlow, President and CEO, United Way of Central Indiana
Melanie Brizzi Administrator, FSSA Bureau of Child Care
Gail Wolfe, Director, Lynhurst Baptist Church Preschool
Wanda Stewart-Morgan, Director, Edna Martin Christian Center Childcare Ministry
