Shifting perspectives to increase child wellness through education
Education plays a crucial role in a child’s future. In a positive educational environment, children not only learn about English, math and science, but they hone life skills such as critical thinking, problem solving and navigating peer relationships. At Upbring, providing quality educational programs drives the success of advancing our mission. In addition to offering top-tier education through our Upbring Head Start preschool programs, we incorporate an educational component throughout all programs. At Upbring, we realize the power education has to prevent child abuse from ever happening and design our programs to have impact that will last for generations.

Upbring Head Start Preschool
A love of learning starts well before a child enters Kindergarten. Our Head Start Preschools focus on teaching fundamental skills in a positive educational environment. Children not only learn how to count, read sight words, and recognize shapes and colors, but they also strengthen their problem solving, critical thinking and social skills.
