Rooted in Research. Proven in Practice.
The Ready 4K and Beyond program provides high-quality messaging through a text-based application to support family engagement and encourage parent and child development. This effort continues beyond kindergarten, providing high-quality content through age 13. Families receive carefully sequenced messages to build key skills, including SEL, math, and literacy. Research first conducted at Stanford showed students gained 2 to 3 months over peers when families received Ready4K messages.In addition to the social-emotional family engagement content, we offer financial literacy messages to families participating in the Sammy Rabbit Money School.
The family engagement program is delivered via text messages, the only technology to reach 97% of families.
3 strengths-based messages per week include fun facts and easy tips for promoting their kids’ development through daily activities – like finding odd or even building numbers when walking down the street. Written at a 3rd grade reading level. Available in multiple languages.
Developed by educational researchers, Ready4K is a highly accessible, evidence-based family engagement solution that is carefully designed to drive impact at every step along the way. It starts with our focus on access. More than 95% of families use text message, which makes it the perfect way to deliver evidence-based curricula to birth through 8th grade families each week in 10+ languages.
