Ready At Five improves the practice and quality of early childhood education in Maryland.
We believe that every child in Maryland should have the foundational skills needed for success in school, career and life.
Ready At Five is a resource for early childhood education in Maryland, providing research- and data-driven solutions for educators, parents and communities. We know that children who have access to high-quality early learning experiences are more likely to complete high school, graduate college, and become a valuable part of the workforce. National studies show that investments in early childhood education significantly reduce later expenses for remedial and corrective services. In Maryland, a state recognized for its leadership in the early childhood education arena, the return is at least $8 for every dollar invested.
