For Now, Their Journey Is Up To You

Like it or not, we choose our path.  That path is influenced, for good or bad, depending on our first steps in life.   Kindergarten Readiness steers children in a positive direction and prepares them to effectively meet the opportunities and challenges they will face.  Impact Idaho is dedicated to supporting local parents and caregivers in their efforts to provide a stable, productive path for children.  It can be as simple as incorporating a few meaningful activities into playtime. 


Kids who know their ABC’s, how to count, and basic reasoning skills before they start kindergarten achieve higher levels of success than those who don’t– Use our kinder-ready resources and turn playtime into learning.
