Building The Basics in Pensacola has never been more important.
We've always worked to improve kindergarten readiness and build capacity in parents both face-to-face and in small groups. COVID-19 slowed us down, but we are pivoting and reaching out to parents in new ways, in our new world.
And we need your help.
We still believe that every child deserves the best chance for a good start in life. But we fear that this crisis is widening the gap for children in our community. The children with access to quality early education tools and support will benefit immensely from them. And the families without those tools will struggle to keep up.
We have a tool we know will help parents — but we need your help to reach as many of them as we can.
Basics Insights is a twice-a-week text messaging program that sends direct to parents' phone advice about what they can do -- right now -- to build their child's brain. We are working to share this resource with parents, but we can't do it alone. We will need your help to enroll more moms in this program after our free enrollment window closes.
The funds we raise will help us extend the ability we have to enroll families in this Harvard University-based project. Please help if you can.
