Licensing Agreement and Costs

Licensing Agreement

A signed license agreement is required. This grants a non-exclusive license to use the READY! for Kindergarten program and materials within your child care center or preschool. To serve more children, The Children's Reading Foundation waives the licensing fee for child care provider kits. 

Read our License Agreement to provide a better understanding of the READY! for Kindergarten legal and licensing requirements.

Budgeting and Costs

READY! for Kindergarten Child Care Centers & Preschool kits cost $199 each (two kits available in English and Spanish: Language & Literacy; and Math & Reasoning and Social & Emotional). Each kit contains enough tools for an educator to play with a purpose with up to three children ages 2 to 5. The kits include printed material such as the Age Level Targets© poster, a resource notebook to support the implementation, and tools to use in the classroom. 

Additional costs to consider when budgeting are a 10 percent shipping and handling on your total order, and sales tax if your program is in Washington state.
