PNC: Commitment to Early Childhood Education

We're focusing on early learning to help children succeed. Research has shown that the first five years of a child's life is critical to long-term achievement. We believe that an investment in pre-K students makes good economic sense and plants the seeds for the dynamic workforce of tomorrow. To that end, we provide innovative opportunities that assist families, educators and community partners to enhance children's learning and development, particularly in underserved communities.
