Ready Communities

Purpose:  Inform and engage the community to support the interwoven connections between a strong community and early childhood.

Definition:  A Ready Community is a community that is strong and vibrant, celebrating all aspects of diversity in both people and leadership.

In a Ready Community, children are a priority and the needs of the whole child are recognized and supported.  Families feel safe, connected, supported, nurtured and empowered.
