The grant, totaling $80,000, is for four classrooms dedicated to infant and toddler care. The state will also provide infant and toddler specialist for teacher training. According to DECAL Commissioner Amy Jacobs, the state-funded grant will help implement strong language and literacy instruction for children in the earliest, and most critical, years of life. More specifically, the grant will 14 help meet a goal in Georgia set in 2011 by Governor Nathan Deal. That goal is for children to read at their grade level by the third grade. A quality early learning program that exposes young children to social interactions, language and literacy is critical.
