Did you know... 

From birth to age 5, a child learns faster than at any other time in his or her life. Those early learning experiences influence success in school and beyond. Data shows students who start school ahead, stay ahead. Learn what you can do to nurture a child's development in their earliest  years, preparing their minds for all future learning.

Our READY! parent workshops provide age-appropriate targets and training in the areas of language and literacy, math and reasoning, and social-emotional. Purposeful play and 20 minutes of daily read-aloud make a difference that lasts a lifetime.
