United Way's Born Learning Trails
New in 2020, United Way launched the first-ever Born Learning Trails in the Blackhawk Region. Born Learning is an innovative public engagement campaign that helps parents, caregivers and communities create quality early learning opportunities for young children.
A born learning trail contains 10 (12″ x 24″) colorful and interactive signs with activities for adults to engage in with young children to turn an outdoor trip into a fun learning experience. Trails signs are printed in both English and Spanish.
Stop! Learn! Play! encourages parents and caregivers to follow the child’s lead, building the child’s curiosity and confidence, and reinforcing the learning already under way.
