Developed at Stanford University, Ready4K is a proven program that enhances parents’ existing routines with their children (birth to 4th grade) to strengthen development and growth.

The program meets parents where they are—on their phones, via text. Enrolled parents and caregivers receive weekly, age-appropriate tips to weave developmentally appropriate learning into everyday activities and routines—like counting the steps to the bus stop or naming the letters on the shampoo bottle during bath time.

Ready4K is an easy and proven way to increase parent engagement and boost children’s learning from birth to 4th grade. Our goal is to leverage the impact of our books by providing parents with tips on ways they can use the books with their child at any age.

We are excited to offer this program to our partners and the parents and care givers they serve—and to you!
