Kids World Learning Center partners with Clay to prioritize behavioral and developmental health for their students

Clay is announcing a new partnership with Kids World Learning Center, providing support to all of their children and their families.

Clay, a virtual behavioral health solution designed specifically to support young children, today announced its partnership withKids World Learning Center, a best-in-class early childhood education center in Georgia. Clay is the first virtual behavioral health platform integrating with early education centers and comes at a critical time as the mental/emotional health crisis is threatening young children has worsened post-COVID.

This partnership acknowledges the important role and responsibility early childhood education schools have in turning the tides on the mental health crisis.

When bringing children to Kids World Learning Center, parents can rest assured that they’ll be safe, sound and thrilled about diving into an ocean of learning and fun. Parents can sign their kids up for their program and trust that their children will be engaged, entertained and enriched. By encouraging early learning, Kids World Learning Center can inspire children to start reading early on and develop early learning and language skills. Parents will be impressed not just by how much their child learns at the center, but also by how happy they’ll be to keep coming back.

  Early childhood intervention has the most impact and long-term effect on the health and well-being of families in crisis. That is why Kids World Learning Center, Statesboro, GA, is proud to be partnering with CLAY.  Our partnership will assist teachers in assessments, provide knowledge and support for teachers, and give resources to aid in the classroom.  CLAY will also strengthen our program’s process of identifying children’s needs and assist the program in being a resource for families.  I love that CLAY works directly with families to give them needed support, helping them work on preventing challenges from getting worse over time, and assisting families in improving their child’s development. I am proud to bring CLAY to the staff and families of Kids World Learning Center.
