UWMC believes that every child should have access to an early education program as it is essential to building a strong foundation for achievement. Research indicates the greater the investment in young children, the less funds will be needed for remediation and special services later. UWMC’s Success by 6™ early education program helps to develop socialization and learning skills while also being taught in the classroom that the student will attend at the start of the kindergarten year.

Success by 6™ classrooms have expanded to 20 classrooms in Mercer County and Brookfield. Through multiple collaborations, this program operates at a cost of less than $3.00 per student hour. Our partnership with the PA Early Learning Investment Commission, provides a conduit for policy changes in Harrisburg that promote statewide pre-kindergarten funding.
