Educare Atlanta

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. For example, the school partners with the Center for Working Families to offer an employment and job training program to Educare parents. Educare Atlanta’s two-generation approach ensures that parents as well as children are prepared to succeed in life.
