Get ready for kindergarten with Waterford UPSTART, a free, at-home school readiness program available to children entering kindergarten in the fall of 2022.
Using Waterford UPSTART, families can give their children a fun start in reading, math and science in just 15 minutes a day, 5 days a week. It’s open to any low-income family with a 4K child in the Racine Unified School District.
Families registered for the program will receive personalized coaching support in their home language from a Licensed Early Education Professional and a Family Educational Liaison, a computer that can be kept upon completion of the program and internet while enrolled in the program.
While Waterford UPSTART does not replace preschool nor is it an online school, the program does provide children the skills they need for their first day of kindergarten and beyond.
Families can register at www.waterford.org/upstart/ or by calling 1-888-982-9898.
