Why School
Readiness Matters

Preparing your child for lifelong success starts with school readiness. From the moment they’re born, children are constantly developing and learning new skills that help prepare them to take on school and beyond. When parents and families make school readiness a priority, it establishes a strong foundation for your child to fine-tune their motor skills, language and literacy abilities, social and emotional awareness, and more.
