What We Are Doing

What We Do

Get Ready!

Today, only 45% of children in Guilford County enter kindergarten ready to read, and the number is growing. One in 4 will need significant remediation to catch up with their peers — that’s more than 1,000 children each year. Children who start behind in school have a difficult time catching up.

We are building a supportive, responsive system of care that improves outcomes for all children in Guilford County. In partnership with families, partner organizations, and our whole community, we seek to improve outcomes in these areas:

  • Planned and well-timed pregnancies
  • Healthy births
  • On-track development for infants & toddlers
  • Kindergarten readiness
  • Success in third grade
