Ready-to-Learn Centers

Ready to Learn Centers are located in six elementary schools in Wake County and operate in accordance with the Wake County Public School System's established calendar at each school. Four of the programs operate on a traditional school calendar. The center at Jones Dairy operates on tracks 2 and 4 and Carver operates on a modified year round schedule. Please note that the Wake County Public School System Inclement Weather Plan also pertains to each center.

Each Ready To Learn Center provides high quality, developmentally appropriate, early childhood learning experiences through a supportive and cooperative partnership between families and early childhood professionals. You may download a brochure here: RTL Brochure

The goals of the program are to encourage the healthy development and educational success of all children and to increase the capacity of families to serve as the primary nurturers, teachers and advocates for their children.  We achieve these goals by offering the following: Creative Play groups, Music and Movement, Getting Ready for Kindergarten activities, developmental screenings, parent education, referrals to community programs and agencies. Each center offers a variety of programs for different age groups.
