Ready Set Soar


ReadySetSoar is the early learning initiative for Montgomery County and is part of Learn to Earn Dayton.  ReadySetSoar was launched in the fall of 2007 by the Montgomery County Family and Children First Council and The Frank M. Tait Foundation with the goal of improving kindergarten readiness in Montgomery County.  Since its inception, with support from the Iddings Foundation, the work of ReadySetSoar has expanded to focus on improving kindergarten readiness and third grade reading proficiency.


Learn to Earn Dayton 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.

ReadySetSoar is part of the Campaign for Grade Level Reading and is aligned on three key strategy areas:

1) Kindergarten Readiness is targeted with the following initiatives:

2) Summer and After School Learning are targeted with the following initiatives:
