Mission, Vision & Goals

Mission / Vision / Goals

Mission:

Ready for School, Ready for Life is a collaborative effort to build a connected, innovative system of care for Guilford County’s youngest children and their families.

Vision:

Every child in Guilford County born in 2021 and beyond will enter kindergarten developmentally on track in five key areas:

• Physical development
• Language and communication
• Social-emotional development
• Cognitive development
• Approaches to play and learning

The system of care will support families and children at every stage, starting with prenatal care and continuing through school entry.

Goals:

To achieve this goal, our community is transforming the early childhood system to achieve three key areas:

• Planned and well-timed pregnancies
• Healthy births
• Infants, toddlers, and preschoolers developmentally on track

Over time, this will continue to expand to kindergarten entry and reading on grade level by third-grade.
