Children are Ready to Succeed in School

Our Goal in Action

As the community works toward making sure all children in Broward are ready to succeed in school, committees have been working hard on ways to:

- Improve children's educational success by making sure all of Broward children are ready to succeed in Kindergarten.
- Improve the availability and quality of inclusive out-of-school time programs for economically disadvantaged children and for children with special needs (inclusion).
- Improve the availability and quality of out-of-school care for children with special physical, developmental, and behavioral needs who require intensive services.
- Enhance academic achievement,
- Support social-emotional learning, developmental and physical activities.
- And encourage providers in the community to provide educational field trips and cultural arts opportunities.

  • Children will succeed in school.
