Introducing ReadyRosie® for School District & Head Start Programs
As part of the Preschool Development Grant, the Nebraska Department of Education, Office of Early Childhood and Nebraska Head Start State Collaboration Office are excited to work with Teaching Strategies GOLD® to provide school district and Head Start programs the opportunity to promote family engagement through the ReadyRosie® birth through third grade family resource tool at no cost for the upcoming school year! This resource utilizes video modeling and mobile technology sent from teachers to parents to provide research-based and standards-aligned content that supports growth and development outside of the school setting.
