Two grants of $7,000 each will support the introduction of SAIL into Kindergarten, an evidence-based curriculum that addresses key content areas for rising at-risk Kindergarteners, at Crawford Early Learning Center (located at I.M. Sulzbacher Center for the Homeless) and All About Kids Childcare Center. The Florida Institute for Education (FIE) at UNF first developed and piloted the curriculum in Duval County, and FIE will be a partner to both childcare centers in delivering immersive learning in literacy, math, STEM, digital literacy, movement and family connection. Eighteen children at the Crawford Early Learning Center and 36 children at the All About Kids Childcare Center will be served.
