Developing an early love for learning.

Ready, Set, READ!

The partnership between the Cobb County School District (CCSD) and Wellstar HealthSystem, Ready, Set, Read… is designed to build upon current national and state campaigns to improve early literacy among today’s children.  It has aimed to identify the best practices and promising partnerships that have been modeled at large scale and launch them in the local community served by Cobb County and Wellstar collaboratively.

The  CCSD and Wellstar partnership is specifically designed to provide reading tips for parents and a reading readiness diagnostic for pediatricians to conduct at milestone visits that directly link to the teaching and learning standards for Kindergarten reading (and eventually math) in Cobb County classrooms.  This direct tie of early literacy development to kindergarten expectations unifies the role of the medical provider and teacher specifically around the children of our community.  ​
Parents are provided digital resources to inform and model reading to young children. Developing early reading habits is essential to early literacy.
The goal of this initiative is to ensure that parents have information and tools to support language and literacy development needed for early reading.  Early reading will increase your child’s readiness for school and ultimately provide a rich foundation for which all learning can occur.  Cobb County Schools and Wellstar are committed to the overall physical and cognitive development of the children of Cobb County.
