Invest in Kent County's Future

Most of a child's brain develops in the earliest years of life, laying the foundation for that child to thrive. An investment in high-quality early childhood programs is an investment in healthier brains, stronger families, and children who are ready to learn when they start school.

Our community vision is that every young child in Kent County will enter kindergarten healthy and ready to succeed in school and life. First Steps Kent is working with our partners to ensure that programs, policies, and supports are in place so all young children and their families thrive.

A donation to support the informational campaign will help ensure the community understands the impact that the Ready by Five funding is having on children, families, and the community.
