Ready Set Go! - Increasing Early Childhood Development Outcomes for Roma Children

About Home School Community Liaisons

logoa2The program aims to develop the trust in school and education in general, supporting caregivers and children to become teachers and to present a lesson for the children in the kindergarten.

Through this program, the caregivers will develop a positive attitude towards educational processes (because they, in turn, become educators for a short period of time), and become potential leaders for their communities after presenting a lesson in the kindergartens.

At the same time, the role of the educator in the family life improves once the child sees her/his parent taking the role of the educator.

On 27 November 2015, the first Your Story sessions began in Beica de Jos and Deaj (Mures County) as part of the “Ready Set Go!” project. During the sessions, the mothes of the children included in the “Ready Set Go!” project from the 2 localities learnt how to tell to their children the story “At the Kindergarten” – a preschool children book themed on education.

Your Story Program is an empowerment program, aimed at developing the skills of the caregivers in learning how to read stories to the children and at combating functional illiteracy.
