About Ready at Five

Ready At Five is a dynamic, statewide program of the Maryland Business Roundtable for Education that elevates the discussion, practice and quality of early childhood education in Maryland, so that all children will be ready for school. We believe that all children should have the foundational skills needed for success in school, career and life.

Voices from the Field

"My Pre-K class just finished the VIOLETS curriculum and we all gained so much from it - the ability to spend a significant amount of time on one story really helps the children become engaged and invested in the story - they understand the meaning of the vocabulary words and also what context to use them in.  I'm looking forward to continuing with the VIOLETS curriculum next year."

- Johann Kaltenbacher, Pre-K Teacher, Catholic Charities
