KidsReadyNC is an 18-month initiative to help four lower resourced NC communities strengthen the capacity of their local early childhood development systems. Each community is focused on a specific NC Pathways to Grade-Level Reading (“Pathways”) measure of success (e.g. social emotional well-being). Participating communities are contributing funds and local resources while also receiving tools, technical assistance and access to a peer learning network, all designed to boost capacity and improve early childhood outcomes.
