Online Survey Open: Kindergarten Readiness for All Families

Do you have children ages 0-6 living in your household? Do you live in one of these Windsor county towns: Weathersfield, Windsor, West Windsor, or Hartland? 

If yes, Mt. Ascutney Hospital and Health Center invites you to take an online survey Ascutney Mountain Promise Community Survey: Kindergarten Readiness for All Families.

Mt. Ascutney Hospital and Health Center, the fiscal agent for a Promise Community grant from the state of Vermont is looking for families with children age 0-6 to take a survey about reading to and playing with children.

They are seeking responses from parents, step-parents, foster parents, guardians, and
grandparents or other relatives taking care of children. If young children live with you, they want to hear from you.

The survey is short and should take about 5-7 minutes to complete. Please click here or paste this url into your browser: The survey will be open until March 16th.

Promise Community Initiative provides support to help communities (with at least one elementary school) to work across sectors – including health, education, human services and community planning. Their goal is to improve the educational and developmental outcomes for children in their communities. For the four towns of  Weathersfield, Windsor, West Windsor, or Hartland the grant money will be used to promote kindergarten readiness for all children. More information about the grant can be found here:

Mt. Ascutney is just one of several partners on this grant, including WSESU, the libraries in Windsor and Hartland, Springfield Area Parent Child Center, OneCare Vermont, and Building Bright Futures, among others.

The Ascutney Mountain Promise Community will be conducting activities such as renovating a room at the Windsor Connection Resource Center to create a family friendly activity space, distributing free books (including setting up Little Free Libraries in each town), and providing support for professional development for early childhood educators and care providers.
