'Success by Six' Scholarships Give Head Start to Kindergarteners

The "Success by Six" program is entering its second year in Batavia School District 101. Batavia United Way Executive Director Melinda Kintz said the program provides scholarships that allow lower-income parents to send their children to full-day kindergarten.
More than 20 students will participate in year two, up from 15 in the first year. In year one, $20,000 was raised with $14,000 coming from donations and $6,000 contributed by participating parents.
The Batavia Park District administers the program, which gives children enhanced learning experiences and frees up their parents for greater employment opportunities. Cecelia Hoffman, a teacher at the Hoover Wood Elementary School, said the children’s progress in the first year of the program was noticeable and very encouraging. SCORE
