Ready4K: Text messages to boost your child's learning

Parents of preschoolers, you can now sign up for a new, free texting service that delivers fun facts and easy tips to your phone. Called Ready4K, the texting service shows parents how to boost children’s learning and get them ready for kindergarten. In the last year, the University of Wyoming's Literacy Research Center and Clinic teamed up with Stanford University to develop and research Ready4K to make this service available in Wyoming. Research shows that receiving these helpful texts can significantly increase children’s learning. Parents and caregivers with children, ages 3 to 5, are invited to sign up for the free service, which provides three texts per week. The service is available in English and Spanish.
