Because of KCReady 4s my son was able to attend PreK at the YMCA where it was not only convenient for me in terms of distance but also affordable as a student.

My girls’ speech has improved substantially this school year. They have learned so much and have improved on their emotional maturity as well. Thank you for all your help and knowledge.

Having the support of KC Ready 4s is a life saver. They have assisted our program with children who may have difficult times at school. They are helpful in providing suggestions that help the student and teacher.
