Education + Talent



Early childhood development is essential, because experiences early in life can have a lasting impact on later learning, behavior and health. Providing children with a high-quality environment helps them learn, grow and develop while also leading to proven economic returns of $4-$9 for every public dollar invested in child education before the age of 5. And so supporting and investing in programs that increase kindergarten readiness rates in Northern Kentucky will not only positively impact that one child’s life but will also have a ripple effect on our future workforce and regional economy.

Skyward's goal for the next five years is to implement “Pre-K Works,” a program ensuring high-quality preschool for all 3 and 4-year-olds; expand the number of high-quality childcare providers in order to meet new-found demand; increase capacity for best practice home visitation programs; and support legislation and funding mechanisms to expand early childhood education.
