KidsReadyNC (Institute for Emerging Issues) is now accepting applications. This initiative is an 18 month effort to help selected Tier 1 and 2 communities strengthen the capacity of their early childhood development systems. Communities will be asked to select a "NC Pathways to Grade-Level Reading" measure of success as the focus of their work. Selected communities will receive tools, technical assistance and participate in a peer learning process, all designed to boost capacity and improve outcomes.
“Our children are precious to us. They are everything to me. They are my motivation and my strength. I fought for them all my life, and it’s a fight I will continue so that all our children can have the chance to THRIVE”
