EDUCATION PROGRAM
Kentucky to expand early childhood education program, fund 25 parenting academies across state

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Tuesday, June 17, 2014 4:01 AM EDT
FRANKFORT, Ky.


Kentucky officials are expanding a program that seeks to help parents turn everyday life into learning experiences for their preschool-aged children.

Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear announced Monday the state would pay for 25 "bornlearning Academies" this fall. It's part of a four-year plan to establish 150 academies across the state.

The academies began in northern Kentucky about five years ago as an offshoot of a United Way advertising campaign. Parents of young children attend six family-oriented training sessions at local elementary schools that help them understand their child's early development and how they can promote learning.

The program is paid for through a $1.4 million federal grant and a $1 million donation from Toyota.
