“Ready-Set-Go!” is the Los Angeles Unified School District’s Before School Academic and Enrichment Program. Funded through a California State Grant, the Before and After School Education and Safety Program, and the 21st Century Community Learning Centers federal grant. “Ready-Set-Go!” has been developed to meet the academic and supervision needs of many elementary children during the critical period before school begins. There is no charge for participating in this program.
As many parents find it increasingly difficult to find a safe and supervised place for their children in the before school hours, “Ready-Set-Go!” is available at selected schools. Long commutes, early morning scheduled work hours, and continuing education commitments, all impact the ability of parents and guardians to provide adequate supervision for their children. As a result, starting the school day becomes an anxiety-ridden and hectic event for young children. “Ready-Set-Go!” endeavors to provide a safe environment, ensure children are ready for the school day, engage them in meaningful and fun learning activities, provide breakfast and involve them in some light recreational games and activities, all at no cost to families.
