Thank You for Supporting Clayton on Colorado Gives Day

On behalf of the children and families we serve, thank you for your support of the work we do at Clayton Early Learning. Your support helped us to raise $13,696 on Colorado Gives Day, December 9, 2014.

Why supporting access to high quality early education is so important:

  • Early education fosters the development of a child’s vocabulary, early literacy and social-emotional skills so he/she arrives at kindergarten “ready to read.”
  • Beginning to successfully read in kindergarten is highly predictive of a child’s ability to read on grade level by third grade.
  • Reading on grade level by third grade is highly predictive of a child’s ability to graduate from high school, which is highly predictive of a person’s future success in life.

As Colorado and the country increasingly recognize the critical importance of early childhood education, Clayton Early Learning is leading the way. Quality early education changes lives and your support enables Clayton Early Learning to carry out our mission every day to help all children reach their full potential.
