About the service

University of Wyoming’s Literacy Research Center and Clinic teamed up with Stanford University to develop and research Ready4K to make this service available in Wyoming.

In spring 2016, Ready4K was piloted and tested in Teton and Sublette Counties in Wyoming through leadership and coordination by Children’s Learning Center.

Now, statewide organizations, including the Wyoming Library Association and Wyoming Head Start Association, are supporting outreach efforts to parents of preschoolers and kindergartners.
