Columbus-Lowndes Excel by 5
Excel By 5 is an innovative early childhood community certification process focusing on a community’s young children. It emphasizes the important roles parents and early childhood educators play in the lives of children during their most formative years – birth to age 5. It takes ALL of us to have a “Child-Friendly” Community.
Recognizing the importance in Early Childhood, The W serves as the Columbus-Lowndes Eb5’s Community Partner and The Create Foundation serves as the fiscal partner.
This partnership allows us to work with the Mayor’s Council on Early Childhood Advancement, developing stronger early education centers, creating more pathways and understanding of early childhood health and special needs, and ensuring community support for our youngest children.
The full coalition meets quarterly at the PHILL on the first floor of the EDHS building at The W.
