Helping Mothers and Babies in Forsyth County Succeed

For all children, learning begins long before they ever enter a classroom. And many new mothers—whether they are first-time parents or are caring for multiple children—have questions and need support. At the Trust, we believe every mother—and family—should have access to the information and resources she needs to feel confident in caring for her baby and herself, as she becomes her child’s first and most important teacher.

Great Expectations 2017 Funding Priorities

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.

Parent Input and Community Collaboration Drive New Great Expectations Grants

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.
