United Way of the Coastal Bend’s Success By 6 Early Childhood Initiative encourages parents, educators and caregivers in Nueces County to sign up for the Ready4K text message program. Simply text “SB6kids” to 70138, choose a preferred language and the child’s age and you’re set. It’s free to sign up – though data rates may apply for the weekly texts – and geared toward children ages 0-5.
Ready4K is a text message-based program that sends three texts a week focused on a single topic: one fun fact, one activity and one way to continue the lesson. This is especially helpful for parents. Parents are a child’s very first teacher and we know you want to see your child succeed. Coming up with lessons on a regular basis that foster learning is the hard part. That’s why Ready4K texts are such a great tool: They take the guesswork out of early learning. Everything you need is sent right to your phone.
