Gwinnett County has partnered with Gwinnett County Public Schools and the Building Babies’ Brains initiative to launch an early learning and literacy program called Building Brains (B2) Anywhere.
B2 Anywhere provides mobile early learning programs across Gwinnett, including parks, childcare facilities, community centers, apartment complexes, places of worship, and more. Programs include a focus on literacy, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math), and nature play. They also provide helpful suggestions to prepare children to thrive in kindergarten.
Statistically only 48 % of Gwinnett students enter kindergarten ready to learn. This issue is a matter that impacts all regions of Gwinnett as 100 % of the county’s public elementary schools have students enrolling without the skills needed for kindergarten.
The mobile units provide literacy programs and fun, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) enrichment for children starting at birth through age 8. The programs are designed to highlight play, nature, and hands-on learning for the county’s youngest residents. They also demonstrate learning concepts for parents and caregivers to help their little learners prepare to thrive in kindergarten and beyond.
B2 Anywhere is closing the literacy and academic preparation gaps in our community. We are committed to serving and growing with Gwinnett’s residents.
B2 Anywhere events are free to attend, but pre-registration is required. COVID-19 protocols are in place to protect participants and staff. For more information, visit B2Anywhere.com.
