Success By 6®, an initiative of
the United Way of Atlantic County, is leading an effort to create a web
of services within our community to make a positive impact on the lives
of children ages 0-6. Success By 6® is a community-wide early childhood
initiative that brings together resources from a partnership of
individuals from businesses, education, health care, government, media,
and service organizations who share the common vision of having
children ready to succeed when they enter school.
Success By 6® has built a unique collaboration of child-serving
agencies in Atlantic County to focus its immediate attention on
pediatric dental health, prenatal care, parenting skills, early
literacy, and improving immunization rates. The goal of Success By 6®
is to ensure that infants and preschool children become prepared for
school and life-emotionally, socially, medically, and educationally. It
is the largest early childhood movement in the country and the most
recognized United Way initiative. Ongoing programs coordinated by
Success By 6® include Raising a Reader, First Book, Born Learning,
Healthy Smiles and a Kindergarten Readiness Calendar.
