What is The Ready to Read Program?

The Ready to Read program is designed for pre-school aged children. Through research, we understand that the best way to prepare a child for success in reading is to read to them. The Ready to Read program is designed to encourage parents to read aloud to their children.

What is The Ready to Learn Program?

The Read to Learn program is designed in tandem with the Ready to Read program to ensure children go to school prepared to learn. The program is based on early childhood research that embraces the idea that parents are a child’s first teacher. The program provides low or no-cost activities that encourage children to reach milestones in child development in the following areas:

  • cognition and general knowledge, 
  • social and emotional development, 
  • approaches to learning, 
  • language and literacy skills 
  • physical development and health.  

To ensure the activities are age-appropriate, the Ready to Learn program is divided into four age groups: 

  • Birth to 18 months, 
  • 2 to 3 years old, 
  • 3 to 4 years old
  • 4 years old and older.
