Children's Services Council on board with reading goal

Release Date: 
03/19/2017

At the Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County (CSC), we trace third-grade reading back to early childhood. We’ve seen that third-graders are more likely to be at grade level when they are socially and emotionally ready to enter kindergarten. Our early childhood development programs help prepare children for school by addressing potential delays, supporting parents and caregivers at home, and encouraging families to actively engage with their children — by reading, singing, talking and playing – every day. In fact, we were honored with a Pacesetter Award in 2012 for our school readiness efforts by the National Campaign for Grade-Level Reading and are still active in the campaign.
