Empower your families

 

Ready4K offers you evidence-based family engagement curricula your PreK to 8th grade families will love. 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 finding fractions while making food or asking their child to predict what will happen next while reading a story.

What Parents Receiving Ready4K Messages Say

"They remind me of ways that I can continue to support her growth and development!"

"The tips and activities provided in the messages have been easy to incorporate into our daily routine and have noticeably improved our interactions and has given us the opportunity to make our normal activities more fun."

"Ready4K has helped a lot when she gets upset. Instead of getting upset she is now able to control her feeling by not getting frustrated but rather she will fold clothes or her favorite, matching socks and taking counting and taking 3 deep breaths"

"They have helped me be calmer dealing with him and they have helped me to help him communicate better with others"

"After doing activities together I believe our relationship is stronger. Her communication skills are growing every day and everything I do to encourage them helps!"

"There is an over-saturation of things to read and you can feel inadequate. Getting these texts feel like reassurances."

“[My favorite activity is] listening and talking with my son. Devices tend to get in the way of living in todays era, it's nice to put them away and actually communicate with each other. It's important.”

“The tips on how to handle a stressful situation have been helpful. Tips like yesterday's that end by saying "It happens to ALL parents" remind me that I'm not alone with my feelings, failures and frustrations.”

“I understand more about their thought process and developing mind to look past big emotions. Plus, I find a lot of the activities suggested improve quality time and learning opportunities which help lessen the impact and frequency of big emotions. Thank you”

Not long ago we got a letter from our first graders school teachers saying he would be pulled out of his small group reading intervention because he had surpassed all of his goals. Not only that but we have watched as he has grown and opened up like a little flower. Where once he was so painfully shy he no longer is. He has grown in self confidence and so many other ways. I attribute most of this to the texts you send with ideas and so much more. Even right down to keeping my own sanity when things are hectic and chaotic. I can't say enough about these great texts!
