what's new

Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! Thanks to our teachers, families, business partners and funders who understand that children who enter school ready for kindergarten have a better chance of succeeding in their school careers and throughout their lives. We are happy to introduce Social Studies Learning Parties and ParentTips - the seventh and final Learning Party Series. From birth, children are exploring their world and learning about social studies. Social Studies involves learning about people, places, government and good citizenship and history. A “family” is a group of people who are related, connected, or care for each other. Families give children a sense of belonging and help children learn about people and the broader community. Click here to learn more about our September ParentTipon Learning About Me and My Family.  
The United Way Campaign is now open.  Please help us continue to make school readiness a reality for all Maryland children by supporting our vital work.  Designate your donation to Ready At Five on your United Way 2014/15 Pledge Form - our designation number is 2997617.
