ReadyK! is an early entrance kindergarten program targeting:
- Children who will be 5 years old by August 31, making them eligible to begin kindergarten in the upcoming fall.
- Children who have had little or no access to a high-quality early learning experience.
- Children who demonstrate a need for early entrance, as determined by our Highline ReadyK! screening.
ReadyK! students start school in February, rather than waiting until September. Programs will be located in schools across Highline. Students in the ReadyK! class become part of the school community, like other kindergarten students do. In the fall, students will attend their home school for their fall kindergarten program.
ReadyK! is free for families and is fully funded by the state. If you know of a family who may benefit from the program, urge them to apply.
