Ready Set Soar


ReadySetSoar is a public-private partnership in the Dayton region. It was launched in the Fall of 2007 by the Montgomery County Family and Children First Council with the goal of improving kindergarten readiness in Montgomery County. Through partnerships with childcare and preschool providers, schools, and non-profit organizations, ReadySetSoar is focused on improving the quality of early care and education.

ReadySetSoar has been generously funded by the Montgomery County Family and Children First Council, The Frank M. Tait Foundation, PNC Grow Up Great, Dayton Power & Light and the Montgomery County Educational Service Center.

ReadySetSoar’s Advisory Cabinet includes key leaders from public schools, Head Start, private childcare programs and non-profit organizations, all of which help identify priorities and strategies to improve kindergarten readiness.

ReadySetSoar is housed within Learn to Earn Dayton, which is working to increase the number of post-secondary credentials in the Dayton region. ReadySetSoar is helping build the foundation for Learn to Earn Dayton partners because research shows that children who have a high quality preschool and early educational experience are more likely to graduate from high school and pursue post-secondary credentials.  View the Learn to Earn Continuum.
