In our district and nationwide, 44 percent of children entering kindergarten test below proficiency for learning readiness – and data verifies that children who start behind, stay behind. The READY! for Kindergarten program provides parents of children up to 5 years old with instruction, books and educational toys to help their children achieve success at the very start.
After four years of the READY! for Kindergarten program, 90 percent of children in the program now enter school testing at or above readiness levels.
