Voices from the Field

"VIOLETS on the bus offered in our rural community in Queen Anne's County wouldn't be possible without the wonderful support of Ready At Five. Our families look forward to our visits and enjoy listening to the wonderful stories presented in the VIOLETS format. The children love this experience and we have such a good feeling after working in the community - thanks for helping the children in our community become better prepared for school success!" - Elizabeth Miller, Coordinator, Judy Center Partnership of Queen Anne's County
