The Women's Leadership Council of the United Way of the Rock River Valley is disturbing its "Success by Six Kindergarten Readiness Calendars". The calendars feature fun language-building activities to help parents and caregivers prepare children under the age of five for kindergarten.

Women's Leadership Council Chair Rebecca Epperson said they conducted a survey from lasts years calendars and that the impact has been positive. "Parents, family members and even teachers are finding that reading levels and their interaction levels have improved dramatically," said Epperson.

Five thousand calendars will be distributed to early childhood centers in Winnebago and Ogle Counties.
