Community Services for Children receives grant
Community Services for Children recently announced it received a $50,000 grant, payable over two years, from the PNC Foundation in support of PNC Grow Up Great, a bilingual $500 million, multiyear initiative to help prepare children from birth to age 5 for success in school and life.
The grant will help provide enhanced educational opportunities to six head start classrooms at The Learning Hub – City Center. The public/private collaboration between CSC’s Head Start program and City Center Corporation provides a community nucleus that serves 110 preschool children and their families with high-quality early education and community resources with local partners.
PNC’s funding will support a scientist in residence who will integrate advanced STEM content skills and lessons in the classroom. The support also makes possible an artist in residence who will integrate art processes in the classroom including visual arts, music, and drama.
