Thanks to donors like you, we have officially launched our fifth year of programming! Our twenty childcare partners are now enrolling 1,500 families in our family engagement and literacy curriculum - delivered via weekly email and text message. Once enrolled, our partners will send families home with English and Spanish-English bilingual books to build home libraries.
Because preschool vocabulary predicts high school graduation rates, we empower families to teach children the words they need to reach their full potential.
Our programs include three unique components:
Annual Book Donation: Families take home one book to build their home library.
Weekly Text Messages: Families receive three evidence-based Ready4K text messages a week with tips to build on existing family routines to teach early learning skills. Ready4K texts are proven to increase parent engagement and boost child learning by an additional three months in just one year. Texts are available in English, Spanish and Arabic and are differentiated for children from birth to third grade – so families will enjoy our programs for up to eight years!
Weekly Emails: Families receive three literacy emails a week containing eBooks, read along videos, guided reading questions and easy strategies to teach vocabulary on-the-go.
Our annual books shipment and ongoing family engagement and literacy curriculum are only possible because of your ongoing support. We cannot thank you enough for all you have already done to support our cause. Thank you for helping us close the preschool readiness gap one word at a time.
