Kenley's Story: The power of preschool readiness

For Kenley, preschool readiness impacted her far beyond the textbook ABCs and 123s. It opened the door to school success, fun and new friends. 

Before her preschool readiness experience, Kenley would often "meltdown" because she wasn't able to communicate her needs. This isolated her from her peers and prevented her from playing with other children. Desperate to improve Kenley’s communication and socialization skills, her mother enrolled Kenley in a local preschool readiness group funded by United Way's Impact Fund.
