Learn how you can help children succeed in school.

Children who start kindergarten with grade-level skills or higher are ready for a successful and satisfying education. They start ahead and stay ahead.

From birth to age 5, a child learns at a speed unmatched the rest of their life. Actively engaging families is the most effective way to nurture a child's learning during these critical developmental years.

Request our booklet to learn how school districts and early learning organizations help close the achievement gap by partnering with parents and caregivers so more children succeed in school and in life.

READY! for Kindergarten is a research-based, proven program, and winner of a District Administration Magazine Top 100 Award.

In 2008, 44% of Lake Pend Oreille School District children entering kindergarten tested below proficiency for learning readiness. After the first year, and every year since, an average of 86% of the READY! for Kindergarten graduates entered school testing at or above kindergarten readiness levels.

"We began offering the READY! for Kindergarten program in partnership with the local school system and family resource centers in 2014. With more than 50% of families participating each year, kindergarten teachers tell us they can see a difference and the county’s kindergarten readiness scores have improved significantly."

Children who start kindergarten ahead, stay ahead year after year.

"As a school district, we go beyond the requirement of K-12 education to begin supporting families and children well before they walk into our schools as kindergartners. READY! for Kindergarten is an excellent program to build the potential and the foundation for our youngest learners. And READY! does it by supporting their first and most important teachers: their parents!”
