Advancing Early Learning & Development

Getting Ready promotes school readiness for young children, especially those who are growing up in poverty. It is an approach that encourages parental engagement in all aspects of early childhood development, while building on strengths for parents and children.

The Getting Ready Process:


Strengthens Relationships

The Getting Ready process strengthens relationships among children, parents and educators.

Cultivates Engagment

Parents learn strategies to support their child's autonomy and development.

Creates Consistency

By encouraging parent-educator relationships, children benefit from consistency across home and center-based settings.
