What is Ready4K?
Text messages to boost your child's learning
Developed by educational researchers, Ready4K is an evidence-based text messaging program for parents of newborns, 1-, 2-, 3-, 4- and 5-year-olds provided at no cost. Each week, you will receive fun facts and easy tips to boost your child’s learning. Ready4K activities build on the things that you already do with your child -- like getting your child dressed, meal time, and bath time -- to make boosting your child’s learning fast, fun, and easy. The research behind Ready4K shows that receiving fun facts and easy tips can significantly increase children’s learning.Read more about the research

Parents love texts
Parents who received fun facts and easy tips said that they were very helpful and that they would strongly recommend them to other parents.
These parents engaged in more home learning activities with their children than parents who did not receive study texts. They were also more involved at school.
Kids do better
Children of parents who received fun facts and easy tips gained an additional 2-3 months of learning in important areas of child development.
