Family Support

KC Ready 4s supports the child by supporting the whole family so that families are equipped to encourage their children to learn to their full potential.

Tuition Assistance

Through tuition assistance, KC Ready 4s works to ensure that every 3 and 4-year-old in Kalamazoo County has access to high quality pre-K programs.


Because a child is only four once. Donate now to help every child in Kalamazoo County benefit from high-quality pre-k.

We empower families and educators to give every child an equitable education.

Children who receive high-quality early care and education do better in school and life, which improves their lives and the status of their communities.

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.
