Resources and Programs


Early Learning Program - in collaboration with the YMCA

The YMCA's Early Learning Readiness Program helps to prepare your child for Pre-K and continued learning. ELR provides a stimulating environment for children to play and learn while developing the physical, verbal, and social skills they'll need to successfully begin school.

Pre K 3 pilot program with Dorchester County Public

The theory behind this pilot program is to provide children with two years of pre-k, which should correlate to improved kindergarten readiness.  The current 2022-2023 school year is the second cohort of students.

Ready 4 K

The Wyatt Foundation in conjunction with Dorchester County Public Schools will launch an evidenced based text message program to engage families with their child's education.

Resources for Educators

Attendance Works

As a non-profit initiative, Attendance Works collaborates with schools, districts, states, communities and organizations to ensure that everyone recognizes that chronic absence is a serious issue that can be addressed using a positive, problem-solving approach grounded in an understanding of educational inequities.

Bedtime In a Box

Bedtime in a Box is a creative but simple solution that supports the health and educational development of children prior to entering school by providing families with the materials, tools, and training they need to enact a comprehensive bedtime routine, seven days a week.
