About Born Learning

​Born Learning is the only national early learning public engagement campaign designed to be adapted locally. While local communities are increasingly focused on young children’s early learning needs, they don’t always have a free public engagement toolkit at their disposal. That’s why Born Learning offers pre-designed, localizable educational materials based on the latest early childhood research, that can be localized and a wide array of community engagement tools and templates. There is no cost, except for printing.

Born Learning offers a tangible way for local United Ways to make lasting community change to boost school readiness. You can demonstrate community impact, boost visibility, develop new partnerships and sponsorships and provide a year-round fundraising campaign offering. You can also use Born Learning tools and templates to help you reach out to the media and business community, follow a step-by-step approach to community engagement; and take advantage of PR tips and templates designed to generate headlines for Born Learning activities. Born Learning campaigns look different in every community, depending on local needs, focus and capacity. Many are connecting parents and caregivers with local resources, programs and supports. Others are working with hospitals, pediatricians and human service agencies to include Born Learning educational material in partners’ activities. And some are using Born Learning tools and templates to “prime the pump” for lasting community change to support young children and their families.

Whatever you’re doing – or want to do – for young children in your community, Born Learning has a tool to support you. It’s the go-to place for all tools, materials, templates and ideas designed to help you carry out Born Learning successfully in your community. Questions?
