Happy, Healthy,
Ready for School

The first day of school is a big step for your child. The classroom is a brand-new world of learning that can be both exciting and challenging. As your child's first (and favorite!) teacher, you can create a "classroom" wherever you are—at home, in the car, or even at the grocery store. A little early preparation can help her build a lifelong love of learning.

About This Project

Happy, Healthy, Ready for School was developed to help parents enrich a child's everyday routine with learning experiences. Focusing on physical, emotional, and academic readiness, the project's resources help parents make the most of the time they spend with their children. Happy, Healthy, Ready for School highlights the idea that learning can happen anywhere from the dinner table to the grocery store, and anytime from breakfast to bedtime.
