SBCC Differentiator: PWW was founded on the core value that parents and caregivers are their children’s first—and best—lifelong teachers. Designed to ignite the innate capacity to promote their children’s learning, PWW is a true partnership between parents, communities, children, and staff.
Description: Preschool Without Walls (PWW) harnesses the innate capacity of parents and communities to promote children’s learning in communities where traditional preschool isn’t available due to institutional, cultural, or financial circumstances.
In this innovative model, parents and caregivers learn alongside their children as they cultivate physical, social, emotional, and cognitive excellence across a range of subjects geared towards helping them develop the social and academic skills they need to be ready for kindergarten.
PWW helps strengthen the four domain areas of child development (physical, social, emotional, and cognitive) through a focus on early literacy, mathematics, STEM-based themes, colors, songs, activities, and essential everyday life topics. This community-based approach creates a space, both on-line and in person, for parents and caregivers to be a part of their child's growth and development through the method of popular education.
