PNC Grow Up Great

The PNC Grow Up Great initiative inspires great futures by helping children from birth through age 5 get ready for school and develop a passion for learning that lasts a lifetime. In Atlanta, PNC Grow Up Great partners with the Alliance Theatre and Fernbank Museum to provide preschool and pre-K students with arts and science education through field trips, classroom visits and other resources. The program also supports exceptional education by providing on-the-job learning for pre-K educators.

We are proud to bring the PNC Grow Up Great program to all Atlanta Public Schools pre-K classrooms. Each year, every classroom and its students receive:

  • Field trips to two of Atlanta’s major cultural institutions – Fernbank Museum and Alliance Theatre
  • In-class lessons with experts in arts and science education
  • Educator workshops focused on skills and tools for creating excellent learning environments
  • An at-home learning kit for each student filled with science and arts education resources
