Empower your families

 

Ready4K is an evidence-based family engagement curriculum delivered via text messages. Each week, parents and caregivers receive text messages with fun facts and easy tips on how to promote their children’s development by building on existing family routines – like pointing out letters on the shampoo bottle during bath time and naming their sounds.

 Serve the hardest-to-reach

Our access-first approach makes Ready4K a favorite way for community based organizations to deliver both high quality parenting curricula AND essential local resources right into families’ hands.

And we can help you partner with your local schools or Head Starts, boosting the impact of your program and the reach of their family engagement work.

 

  • Available in 10+ languages
  • Give families a strengths-based parenting curriculum, delivered wherever they are
  • Select the program that best meets your families’ needs: whole child Core, Trauma-Informed, or Personalized Learning
  • Send your own messages to connect families to local resources or information about upcoming events
  • Survey families to learn what they need the most
  • See the impact on your families with family engagement surveys and an end-of-year impact report
