  • This program uses simple early literacy lesson plans to support kindergarten readiness for children ages 0-5 years in Burlington’s home childcares.
  • Our first corps of volunteers are ready to begin visiting 10 home childcares in Burlington! Stay tuned for updates as the program enters this new phase!
  • Volunteers will not only help children to develop foundational skills, but will form lasting relationships with providers, children, and families!
