A Message to Maryland EXCELS providers, on behalf of Ready at Five

We are pleased to share an exciting opportunity with Maryland EXCELS providers in Washington, Wicomico, Worcester, Somerset, and Dorchester Counties to engage families with the wonderful work you do each day in your programs. ReadyRosie is an online family engagement tool that provides families and caregivers with email or text messages several times a week that contain videos in English and in Spanish so they can better engage their children at home, in the library, in the car, at the store, or wherever they are spending time. 
As a child care program or provider in Washington, Wicomico, Worcester, Somerset, or Dorchester county, you are able to offer access to ReadyRosie for your families this year in two different ways: 

  1. Parent Self-Register. Parents and families in Washington, Wicomico, Worcester, Somerset, and Dorchester Counties can self-register by going to and entering their zip code. If you want to have parents sign-up themselves, please share the attached flier.
  1. Teacher Share. Teachers can use ReadyRosie as a true family engagement tool through ReadyRosie Teacher Share, which allows you to customize messages, align video messages to your curriculum, and includes a data dashboard for you to track how your active family engagement increases over time. To take advantage of the Teacher Share option, email Natalie at to create your ReadyRosie Teacher Share account so you can invite parents/families to join your ReadyRosie classroom.

If you have any questions, please e-mail Natalie at
We hope you’ll take advantage of this free resource!
