Preschool is such a good start for little ones, however not all families can afford to put their kids in a preschool. Even if you can afford it, it can get pricey! And some kids aren’t ready to leave home and go to a preschool outside their home. Luckily, the UPSTART program is available to all Utah residents–
So, what is the UPSTART program?
It is a free online preschool program for at-home use. The program is designed for the year before kindergarten to get your child ready for school.
UPSTART: Free Preschool Program for Utah Families
Have a child of preschool age? If so, you’re in luck! Pre-registration is open for UPSTART for the 2016-2017 UPSTART program year. This will start in late summer 2016. Children must be entering kindergarten in 2017 to qualify for the upcoming UPSTART program year. Registration is also open for future UPSTART program years to any younger children who may be starting kindergarten later than 2017.
UPSTART uses Waterford Institute’s award-winning software and contains thousands of educational songs, books and lessons to teach reading, math and science. Each child is given unique, individualized lessons based on their skill level and learning style. And the best part is-they love it! The program has proven that for just 15 minutes a day, 5 days a week, children can become kindergarten ready. In fact, most children graduate from UPSTART already at an advanced kindergarten level.
One reader wrote in and told me, “My son started 6 weeks ago and is now reading! Amazing program.” That is pretty impressive!
Over 15% of Utah preschoolers use UPSTART, and in a 2013 study, external evaluators found that kids using UPSTART have 2-3x higher learning rates than those who don’t use the program. Don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity for your child! Register now for UPSTART 2015 and let your child start learning and preparing for school.
