Children learn and develop quickly before age five. 90% of brain development happens during these crucial early years, and we want to help families take advantage of this important time.

An easy way for you to do that is to receive text messages three times a week about things you can do with your young children to teach them literacy, good behavior, and healthy habits. After testing several different solutions right here in Minnesota, we are now signing up interested parents.

If you have a texting plan on your cell phone, there is no cost to you. It’s easy!

Help prepare your children for success in kindergarten—Sign up today!

All children must be 5 years of age or younger.

    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.
