Supporting Children & Families For Success In School

Just 30% of Santa Monica children entering kindergarten are 'very ready' for school, which leaves us with 1 main question: How can we do better?

The secret to moving the dial on kindergarten readiness is working together to educate parents on what it is, why it's so very important, and what they can do to help their child. As professionals who work with children and their parents, early educators and child care providers are uniquely positioned to serve as a key resource during this critical developmental transition point in a child's life. 

smC2C is here to help you. The Building Blocks For Kindergarten awareness & education campaign was created to provide you with tools that will help you work with parents in assessing their child's readiness and building skills needed for a smooth transition to school. Participation and materials are free of charge. All we ask is that you pledge your support and let us know how it's going.

If we work together, we can make sure that every child entering kindergarten in Santa Monica is proud, confident, and ready on their first day of school!
