Ready Kids. Ready Families. Ready Schools.

Just 30% of children entering kindergarten in Santa Monica are 'very ready' for school.
Starting out behind makes it increasingly difficult to catch up with other students throughout a child's academic career.
Building Blocks For Kindergarten helps parents, educators, early child care providers, and other Building Blocks partners work together
to make sure all Santa Monica children start kindergarten ready to learn, inside and outside the classroom.
