Did you know more children are being cared for by someone other than their parents than ever before?
Nationwide, 61% of children ages birth-6 receive some form of child care on a regular basis from persons other than their parents.

The School Readiness Indicators Initiative has three goals:

� to create sets of indicators in states to describe school readiness.

� to use the indicators to influence state policy on children's issues.

� to communicate data meaningfully across the state and around the country.
