Boston Children's Museum ("BCM") will undertake an ambitious, multilevel approach to expanding nationwide the IMLS-funded School Readiness through Partnerships model that addresses persistent gaps in early childhood education and school readiness. The goal of the Building a National Network of Museums and Libraries for School Readiness ("School Readiness Project" or "SRP" or "the Project") is to amplify the strength of organizations serving children and families by forming coalitions that ensure all children in their regions, regardless of socio-economic or linguistic background, have the skills needed to enter school prepared for success. Strongly aligned with the IMLS goal to build capacity for museums and libraries, the Building a National Network of Museums and Libraries for School Readiness program will engage more states and institutions nationwide in harnessing the power of museums and libraries to support school readiness.
