School Readiness Symposia

School Readiness Symposia feature national and international experts who impart cutting-edge research and practices to early education professionals, state and local policy makers, parents, librarians, and members of the business community. Responding to gaps in readiness among key populations and specific early education content and instructional needs, Ready At Five convenes two to three Symposia each year on a wide array of topics. Recent Symposia topics have included incorporating the arts into the early learning classroom, providing a vision for improving Maryland's early care and education system, and why early interventions work, particularly for low-income children. Early educators receive MSDE Office of Child Care Core Knowledge “clock hours” for attending the Symposia.

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

"We were honored to be selected to participate in the VIOLETS program with full support of training, materials, assessor and coach.  The children love the program; their vocabularies are strengthened because of their involvement with VIOLETS.  There is absolutely no doubt that our program is stronger because of VIOLETS.  We look forward to implementing the program for years to come.  Kudos and thanks to Ready At Five, our coach Marie and our assessor."-Donna Long, Center Director, University of Maryland Eastern Shore Family Development Center
