EARLY CHILDHOOD STRATEGIC FOCUS

The Rotary Club of Wilmington has committed to a three-year strategic focus to help improve early education in Delaware.

Vision: Every Delaware child should have high-quality early education experience.

Strategic Focus: Services for young children 0-5 and their families in the City of Wilmington and State of Delaware.

  • 90% of the brain is formed by age 5
  • There are 50,000 children in Delaware under age 5
  • The state invests a fraction (less than 1/4) per child in this age group as compared to K-12 students
  • About half of children entering Kindergarten in Delaware do not have the skills needed to succeed
  • And, only about half of children in Delaware have a preschool experience before Kindergarten

We partner with Wilmington-based nonprofit early learning centers to learn about their needs and the needs of the families they serve—and to contribute in our community.
