Summer can be an amazing time to build family connections and nurture healthy brains through real-world opportunities. But many families can’t take vacations or secure transportation to places like libraries and museums. For many children, summer can actually be a time of learning loss. And this learning loss contributes to gaps down the road in school achievement and wage earning.
But we believe that every parent or caregiver can provide enrichment through everyday life, regardless of resources or educational background.
And that’s why we’re so excited about Summer Soar from Ready Rosie.
If you’re not already familiar with this awesome FREE resource we’ve made available to all Pickens County families who register, you can learn all about it here.
In short, ReadyRosie is an early education tool that uses technology to meet parents and caregivers right where they are — on their phones! ReadyRosie has hundreds of brief videos in English and Spanish that model everyday interactions in familiar environments with real parents. This videos are delivered once a week.
Families who are signed up for ReadyRosie will receive Summer Soar, an 8 week series of video playlists designed to give families relevant ideas, games, and activities throughout the summer. It begins June 12th so be sure to spread the word and sign up!
Here’s what one of the parents had to say about the ReadyRosie summer program and the impact it had on her family:
This program made me realize the importance of slowing down, and being intentional when I am with my children. I brought fun into learning and everyday was a day to have good conversation about things she was interested in.
Make the most of this summer by making the most of the fun and everyday learning opportunities right where you are.
