Housed on the first floor of the Paul Lawrence Dunbar Elementary School, Educare Atlanta connects children and families to a quality education from birth through fifth grade. The school serves low-income young children and families in Atlanta’s Mechanicsville neighborhood, less than a mile from city hall and the state capitol. Through strong community partnerships, Educare Atlanta offers programs and services that build the skills and confidence of parents.

Educare Atlanta’s two-generation approach ensures that parents as well as children are prepared to succeed in life.
