Massachusetts Reach Out and Read; Parent-Child Home Program; and the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care
Reach Out and Read is an evidence-based nonprofit organization that promotes early literacy and school readiness in pediatric exam rooms nationwide by giving new books to children and advice to parents about the importance of reading aloud.
The Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care knows that children's earliest experiences are especially important because building the human brain begins even before birth; a strong foundation in early years greatly increases the chance of positive outcomes.
The Parent Child Home Program is a national early childhood literacy, parenting, and school readiness program. The evidence-based Program effectively bridges the achievement gap for low-income children through its unique focus on intensive home visiting with two and three-year-olds and their parents.
