Success By 6

Helping All Children Have the Opportunity to Succeed

Success By 6 is United Way’s early learning community impact initiative that helps prepare our youngest children for learning when they get to school. Local and state Success By 6's initiatives pursue multiple strategies including public awareness, parent education, increasing quality childcare and increasing public access to services like health care and literacy to galvanize communities to help young children come to school ready to succeed. Success By 6 is the nation’s largest network of early childhood coalitions.

Success By 6 and BornLearning

BornLearning is a public engagement toolkit, available at, created to help United Way's raise awareness about early learning, help educate parents and caregivers, and build public will for early learning policy and action. This is done through three components:

  • Awareness through PSA's developed by United Way's partner, the Ad Council.
  • Education through educational materials for parents and caregivers, developed by our partner, Civitas.
  • Action through community action tools, tips and templates created by United Way Success By 6 and our partner, Families and Work Institute.
