We Believe Books Change Lives

As the largest private early-childhood education provider in the US, Knowledge Universe plays a critical role in preparing our youngest children for school and a lifelong love of learning. Learning begins at birth and children who spend time reading starting from just days old, have higher memory skills, motivation, and curiosity by age one. We know, because we see it every day, that books can change a child’s life. This is why at Knowledge Universe we make it our mission to focus on early literacy. Words engage the imagination, a child’s curiosity and a lifetime of reading. We believe in the simple power of a book and invite you to join our efforts. Help children thrive by making story time part of family time and give a book today. Knowledge Universe, Alpha Broadcasting and Schoolhouse Supplies are coming together the entire month of June for “A Month of A Million Story Times.” This month long program supports our local community by promoting summer reading and benefiting children and families that have limited access to books. We are asking and encouraging you to help us gather as many books as we can to donate at the end of the month. You can help contribute to “A Month of A Million Storytimes” by donating new and gently used books to specific onsite events and on-going donation drop off locations throughout the month of June.
