    • What does this program cost? There is no charge for this texting program. Standard text messaging and data rates may apply from your mobile carrier.
    • Why do you need my child’s birthdate? All messages are tailored to your child’s age, ensuring all messages are in line with their development stage.
    • When will I receive the texts? You will receive 3 messages per week—Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Here’s an example of one week’s worth of messages.
      1. Monday - FACT: Preschool is when many children begin learning how to write letters. Kids can get ready for this big step by making letters with everyday objects.
      2. Wednesday - TIP: During snack time, have a letter building party. Can your child make a T, X, L & N out of snacks like cheerios or grapes? What about curvy letters like S?
      3. Friday - GROWTH: Keep making letters to prepare your child for kindergarten! Before dinner, try using toothpicks, tinfoil or straws to make all of the letters in your child’s name.
    • What version of Spanish are the texts in? We use Mexican Spanish for our texts.
    • Can I sign up more than one child with the same phone number? Yes! If you have more than one child who is under five {the cutoff is the day before their sixth birthday}, you can enroll all of them. You can text TS, TS ESP, TS SOM or DAK to 70138, and enter a new birthdate each time you are prompted.
