The East Wake Education Foundation, a community-based non-profit that serves the families in Eastern Wake County. The Foundation was established in 1993 to serve as an advocacy agency for our area schools and to work to "...assure that every child have the opportunity to arrive at school age healthy and ready to learn." All services are free and provided in both English and Spanish. Our program works with the entire family and early childhood services are for families with children birth to five. Emphasis is placed on introduction to reading, improvement of listening skills and activities that enhance the gross and fine motor skills of the child. With parents, our work helps them to understand the child development stages, how positive discipline works and activities that promote healthy interaction within the family unit.
