Ready4K – An Educational Resource for Families






Boost your child's learning with Ready4K

Berkshire United Way and Northern Berkshire United Way have partnered with Ready4K to empower Berkshire County families with the information and emotional support to act as their child’s first and most important teacher.


What is Ready4K?

Ready4K is a research-based text messaging program offered for free* for families with children ages 0 to 9. Each week, you’ll receive 3 texts with fun facts and tips on ways to help your child learn and grow. Ready4K tips build on your daily routines, like getting dressed, bath time or preparing a meal. And you’ll always get messages that match your child’s age.
The continuous birth-to-third, whole child curriculum promotes family well-being, positive relationships, child transitions and involvement at school, supporting families as lifelong learners and leaders.
