  • PEAK | Pottstown Area Health & Wellness Foundation
    print PEAK There are many community outreach programs in the greater Pottstown area that achieve success by touching the lives of others But it is rare you find a program that touches many lives at a very early age for whom successful outcomes can last a lifetime That program is the Pottstown Early Action for Kindergarten Readiness or PEAK The PEAK initiative focuses on building partnerships with the early learning programs in the Pottstown community The goals of PEAK are Every three and four year old child has access to high quality child care early childhood education pre kindergarten and kindergarten Every parent of young children has access to the high quality skill building and resources needed to prepare them to be their child s first teacher and to prepare their children for success in school Every child has access to health and wellness services to ensure that they are prepared to maximize their potential in school Why coordinate an initiative that starts at such an early age The PEAK managing partners determined that there was a lack of knowledge in the community concerning the importance of high quality early learning experiences and limited information about the resources available to families and the importance of the family in the child s educational process Providing a solid foundation that includes good nutrition and physical activity will lead to better learning says David Kraybill President Pottstown Area Health Wellness Foundation PEAK which is funded in part by the Pottstown Foundation and its other community and funding partners understands the need to have a strong focus on improving the health nutrition physical activity and safety of children We appreciate the partnership with the Foundation as we work together to create a comprehensive system to meet the needs of our young children and families
