Help 3, 4, and 5 year-olds get ready for Kindergarten!

Thousands of parents across the state signed up last year to receive text message reminders, in both English and Spanish, to help prepare their 4- and 5-year-olds for success in kindergarten. 

This evidence-based program will again be available starting on Monday, Sept. 26, for families of pre-K and kindergarten students. This year, the partners are also adding text messages tailored to support parents of 3-year-olds, providing tips, facts, resources, and regular reminders of how they can excel in their role as their child’s first and most important teacher.

Once a family enrolls, they receive three short text messages each week: one highlighting an important literacy skill like rhyming or letter recognition, a second with an easy activity that parents can do with their children to develop that skill, and a third with suggestions about how to continue nurturing growth in that area.
