The Warren A. Sill Fund Invests in Early Childhood Education

In 2016, The Warren A. Sill Fund will embark on an early education pilot program in partnership with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) and the Children's Museum of Cleveland (CMC).

An extension of the Fund's mission to support innovative education initiatives in Northeast Ohio, the program will provide STEM-based extra-classroom programming to pre-kindergarten students at Euclid Park Elementary School. Beginning in August, the Museum's educators will visit the pre-k classroom at Euclid Park five times throughout the school year.

The students, all of whom come from economically disadvantaged homes, will receive hour-long sessions featuring creative and engaging curriculum designed to spur a life-long interest in learning. The program is the first of its kind for both CMSD and CMC.

The WASF Board believes that education investments are best made early in a child's school career and we are thrilled to help deliver this extraordinary opportunity to a deserving group of young students.
