Legislators recognized that school readiness programs increase children’s chances of achieving future educational success and becoming productive members of society. It is the intent of the Legislature that programs be developmentally appropriate, research-based, involve parents as their child’s first best teacher, serve as preventive measures for children at risk of future failure, enhance the educational readiness of eligible children, and support family education.
