Smart Parents. Ready Kids.

What is ReadyRosie?

ReadyRosie is an early education tool that is currently helping schools and communities across the nation deepen and scale their parent engagement efforts by leveraging the power of video modeling and mobile technology to meet and equip parents where they are. ReadyRosie has hundreds of brief videos in English and Spanish that model everyday interactions in familiar environments with real parents.

All it takes is 2 minutes a day.

Eggciting Hunt

Egg HuntApril showers did not stop the egg hunt fun from happening at the Northwest Egg HuntBranch Library today.  We learned from our book character friend Hoppy how to find eggs using our five senses and the kids heard a springtime favorite the Tale of Peter Rabbit.  They all made bunny baskets out of paper sacks, filled them from the pool of grass and searched for eggs up and down the book stacks.  Thanks everyone who helped out by donating supplies.
