CapEd Donation Ceremony
November 17, 4pm
CapEd Credit Union - 275 Stratford Drive, Meridian.

Idaho AEYC’s READY! for Kindergarten program will provide parents with free workshops and tools to help young children develop the skills they need to succeed in school. CapEd’s $15,000 donation for READY! for Kindergarten will allow us to serve 50 Boise families, with children ages three to five.

“Parents who engage with their children at home can be one of the most influential teachers a child has,” says Idaho AEYC’s Executive Director Beth Oppenheimer. “By providing families with resources to help their children learn early literacy and math skills, they can feel much more confident their children will be ready to learn their first day of school.”

An additional donation of $2,000 will support our READ Up program. READ Up encourages children to read during the summer months by providing free books for children birth to eight in order to prevent summer learning loss.
