NEW YORK (AP) — The Children's Museum of Manhattan has received a $75,000 grant to expand its pre-kindergarten community health and literary initiative to seven early childhood centers in East Harlem.
The grant comes from the Morgan Stanley Foundation.
The centers will be run by Union Settlement Association. It is an East Harlem organization that aids underserved communities.
The museum, in partnership with Union Settlement and the city Housing Authority, opened its first center in 2013.
The centers provide museum-quality installations and educational programs based on the museum's EatPlayGrow curriculum developed with the National Institutes of Health.
