Helping Kentucky’s Children Succeed Save the Children began working with Kentucky communities in 1932 to provide support to school children during the Great Depression. Since 2003, they have implemented core programming in the state. They currently partner with 31 sites in 8 counties, serving 11,154 children. They also sponsor the Early Steps to School Success Program designed to assist children, from prenatal to age 5, with language, social and emotional development; to equip parents with the skills and knowledge to successfully support their child’s growth; and to develop strong home-school connections. Ages 0–5 The Literacy Program provides children in kindergarten through sixth grade with the opportunity to increase their reading achievement by supplying the tools they need to develop reading skills and the guidance and support they need to grow as readers. Pleasant View has The Healthy Choices Program that aims to increase access to regular physical activity and healthy snacks as well as nutrition education to increase children’s knowledge of healthy living. Another wonderful resource is the grandparent program. They assist students with their reading and based upon student comments they love the caring atmosphere they create!
