TN School Readiness Model and Kid Central TN Website
This summer the TN School Readiness Model was approved by the Governor's Children's Cabinet and was introduced to an audience of 1,000 early childhood educators at the Early Childhood Summit. The TN School Readiness Model is intended to raise awareness about the role of families, communities, and schools collectively to create a nurturing environment to support children's health, development, and education starting from birth.
At this summit a new website www.KidCentralTN.org was introduced as well. The website was designed to connect families with information about children's education, development, and health accessed by their zip code.
