Free Kindergarten Readiness Program for CCS Families
CCS has a special initiative for our city’s youngest learners. Waterford Upstart is an at-home kindergarten readiness program that gives 4-year-olds a fun start in reading, math, and science in 15 minutes a day, 5 days a week.
For CCS families unable to enroll in an in-person Pre-K class, this free, proven program helps children develop the skills they need to be ready for KG!
- It’s Free: Waterford Upstart is a free online program to help your child get ready for kindergarten. Everything you need is included, even a free computer and internet hotspot.
- It’s Simple: Your child completes lessons independently in just 15 minutes a day. The program keeps their interest with fun books, songs & activities that are on their skill level.
- It Works: On average, children who use Waterford Upstart enter kindergarten reading at nearly a first-grade level!
- Reading Skills: Students learn Letter Recognition, Letter Sounds, Reading and Listening Comprehension skills, Real Words and Sight Words, and Vocabulary.

i-Ready Support for Families
The i-Ready Diagnostic is an online program that adjusts its questions to suit a student’s needs. Each item a student sees is individualized based on their answer to the previous question. The purpose of this is not to give your student a score or grade, but instead to determine how best to support your student’s learning. i-ready Family Center is available to help families best support students using the i-Ready program.
