Birth to Five Years

Ready4K

A research-based text-messaging program for parents with young children. Each week, parents will receive age-appropriate facts, tips, and opportunities to boost their child’s learning by building on existing family routines.

Reading Check Up

ReadingCheckup.org provides families with a free individual reading plan for their PreK through 3rd grade child. They take two short quizzes, get their results, and then choose fun activities to practice reading at home. After six weeks of practice, the child takes the quizzes again and gets updated results and new activities.

Raising a Reader

Raising A Reader promotes literacy between parents and children by providing rotating bags of high quality books to children enrolled in child care centers, and by offering onsite early literacy workshops.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library provides books, free of charge, to children living in Mecklenburg County until their 5th birthday. Enrolled children receive one age-appropriate book in the mail each month.

Reach Out & Read

Reach Out and Read gives young children a foundation for success by incorporating books into pediatric care and encouraging families to read aloud together. Doctors, nurse practitioners, and other medical professionals incorporate Reach Out and Read’s evidence-based, three-part model into regular pediatric checkups. Families can locate local participating partner clinics.

The Basics Mecklenburg

The Basics are five evidence-based parenting and caregiving principles that encompass much of what experts find is important for children from birth to age three. Every child from every background can benefit from routinely experiencing the The Basics learning experiences. Therefore, the The Basics Mecklenburg Campaign is working through a broad range of institutions and partners to ensure that every parent and caregiver is fully supported by family and friends to use the Basics practices in everyday life.

Meck Pre K

MECK Pre-K is a Mecklenburg County-funded program that offers a high-quality Pre-K experience to ensure children are academically and developmentally prepared for kindergarten. Classrooms are located in 4 and 5 star child care centers and children attend a 6.5 hour school day program.
