Children’s futures should never be determined by their zip codes.

To turn this belief into reality, we start by working to ensure that every child enters kindergarten ready to learn and thrive. Ready to excel academically, socially, and emotionally. 

Every Child. Every Family. Every Community.


Our Goal

100% of Franklin County children will demonstrate readiness for kindergarten by 2030.

To achieve this goal, we start before preschool, even before birth.

We look at the whole child, the whole family, the whole community.

But it doesn’t stop at kindergarten.

For our children to achieve their potential, we must help them not only be prepared to start school, but also be prepared for elementary school, middle school, high school, and beyond.

And yes, academic readiness is part of the solution, but so is social and emotional development. So is reducing non-academic barriers for every child. So is identifying and addressing gaps and shortcomings in our existing systems.
