Supporting School Readiness

Fairfax County Office for Children works in partnership with families, educators and community organizations as
well as other partners across Virginia to support the school readiness of our county's youngest children.

The Commonwealth of Virginia defines school readiness as:  

  • Ready Children: Ready children are prepared socially, personally, physically and intellectually.
  • Ready Families: Ready families take responsibility for children's school readiness through direct, frequent,
    positive involvement and interest in their children.
  • Ready Schools: Ready schools welcome all children with opportunities to enhance and build confidence in
    their skills, knowledge and abilities.
  • Ready Communities: Ready communities work to support children's school and long-term success by
    providing families affordable access to information, services, high quality child care and early learning opportunities.
