Waterford.org partners with families, districts, educators, and communities to help every child build the skills they need to succeed in school and in life. Waterford.org believes while every individual has the capacity for growth at every stage of life, childhood academic experiences are uniquely critical for setting a lifetime learning trajectory. Waterford UPSTART teaches children the skills they need to be prepared for kindergarten, and it’s available at NO COST to the families. And it works! Low-income or affluent, rural or urban, children who get their academic start with Waterford UPSTART begin on the path toward success.
