Waterford.org is committed to the success of every child from the start of their academic journey. Currently, there are 2.2 million children each year who do not have access to early education programs—nearly half of our nation’s four-year-olds.
Waterford is grateful for sponsors who provide direct financial support for families to participate in Waterford UPSTART, and also for partners who invest their time and resources to help build and sustain programs like Waterford UPSTART in their local communities.
Waterford UPSTART was named a 2019 Audacious Project, one of eight projects with can world changing potential.
