Proceeds from Party on the Green will focus entirely on funding the East Lake Foundation's Early Childhood Education initiative. This includes funding for the East Lake Early Learning Academy, Sheltering Arms East Lake, and the Cox Pre-K Program at Drew Charter School. Education throughout a child’s early years is the catalyst for a lifetime of expanded opportunity and proceeds from this event will extend those resources to more residents.
The Cox Pre-K Program at Drew Charter School offers high-quality early learning opportunities that provide a strong foundation in literacy. Students who come through this program enter Kindergarten ready to learn
The East Lake Early Learning Academy programs are staffed with people who understand the cognitive, physical, and social development of kids, the need children have to feel connected and supported in trying new things, and the caring and reinforcement parents and families need to help each other.
Sheltering Arms transforms the lives of children, their families and communities through model early childhood education and leadership in the field.
