Success By 6 is a model early childhood development for the community, based on the principles of collaboration and prevention.
The goal of Success By 6 is to ensure that all children develop the emotional, social, cognitive, and physical capacities and skills they need to achieve well being, and be ready to learn when they start kindergarten.
St. Landry-Evangeline United Way focuses on improving the lives of children, youth and their families. This is achieved by addressing healthy early childhood development and school readiness (for children ages 0-6), as well as positive development and educational success (for school-aged children and youth); and preparation and support for young people in transition (foster care, school-to-work).
Under the Success by 6 initiativce is the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, a program providing free, age-appropriate books to children age 0-5.
