What We Believe
At the Trust, we believe we need to work together to ensure the young children of Forsyth County, North Carolina—especially those in financially disadvantaged families—meet developmentally-appropriate milestones in their first five years, enter kindergarten ready to learn, and leave set for success in school and life. That’s why we launched Great Expectations in 2015.
The Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust today announced Great Expectations’ grants aimed at helping young children in Forsyth County enter school ready to learn and leave set for success.
The Trust’s investments build on information gleaned from Forsyth Family Voices, a listening and learning effort to gather insights from parents and providers in our community. Grants were also informed by a thorough analysis of existing gaps in the early childhood system.
