School Readiness Program



The School Readiness Grant Program provides a developmentally appropriate preschool program for children ages 3-5. 

Through a program that provides open-ended materials and hands-on activities, children develop socially, intellectually, physically and emotionally. School Readiness adheres to the philosophy that children learn through play. Teachers foster each child’s sense of him/herself as an individual and promote their self-esteem.

Health and nutrition activities are also an integral part of our curriculum. School Readiness builds a foundation of knowledge for future education.
