Sprout Preschool Education Program
Early Childhood Development Initiative for Migrant Children
United Way is partnering with Shanghai Charity Foundation in the Sprout program --- focuses on improving early childhood education quality for migrant workers’ children age 3-6 in Shanghai.
We are focusing on bringing impact to 45 pre-schools, 22,500 migrant children in Min-hang district through collaborating with local government, education bureau, business, NGOs and individuals.
- Sprout program provides training to teachers, supplements teaching facilities and toys, builds up children’s reading interests through Read Learn Succeed ®, and also creates opportunity for employee to volunteer in their neighborhood
- Corporation and its employee can help the children covered by Sprout program by: Volunteer, Give and Advocate.
- Corporation can pair with pre-schools and the employees can volunteer and read books for children (or conduct other creative activities designed by employee themselves)
- Corporation can invest in enhancing the overall conditions across the 45 pre-schools OR donate to specific pairing schools.
We also need your voices to help spread the importance of Early Childhood Education among migrant parents and the general public.
