In our first 10 years, KC Ready 4s has done incredible things for the children of this community: over 1/3 of incoming Kindergarteners now have experienced high-quality learning experiences. Every year, more and more providers are rated high-quality at 4 or 5 stars, and our behavior specialist and speech language pathologists have made sure hundreds of young children are getting the services they need. Think what we can accomplish in the next 10 years with your help!

We know there are so many needs this year; so we truly appreciate your support as our children are only 4 years old once. As economist Art Rolnick shared, “Show me a better return [on investment] and I’ll consider it, of course. But so far, it’s been 20 years now, no one has come up with a program that’s shown a better return than investing in kids this early.”
