2017 REdI  Education Foundation | Investing in our Future

Goal: Increase the number of children that are ready for Kindergarten in Robertson County 

Currently, over 30% of all children in Robertson County are considered behind before they even start school making it almost impossible to catch up and succeed in school.

How do we accomplish that goal?   Give these children access to books from birth and educate the families about the importance of reading to children ages 0-5.
