The campaign is run by Ready Set Soar, the region’s early childhood initiative working to ensure every child is ready for kindergarten. Research shows that the years leading up to kindergarten are very important and can give a child a good foundation for success later in school and life. Together we can make sure every child is ready to thrive in kindergarten and beyond! For more information on Ready Set Soar, please visit: http://www.fivetothrivedayton.org/
