The Children’s Reading Foundation supports parents and caregivers as their child’s first and most influential teacher by offering guidance to develop the skills they need to prepare their child for school.
With initiatives such as READY! for Kindergarten, The Children’s Reading Foundation supports schools and communities by providing school readiness programs that help children succeed.
A child’s experiences from birth to age five create the necessary brain connections essential for all future learning.
The vision of The Children’s Reading Foundation is that every child learns to read early and well, thereby reaching their full potential in school and life. Our goal is that children learn to read at grade level by the end of third grade or by age 8. Our Mission is three fold:
about their important role in raising a reader and preparing their child for kindergarten.
in ensuring students read on grade level by the end of third grade.
in helping young readers be successful.
