Talk, Read & Play is an informational campaign to support families with children ages birth to five. The campaign is a product of Countdown to Kindergarten, in collaboration with city partners.

Countdown to Kindergarten engages families, educators and the community in a citywide effort to enhance early learning opportunities and to support successful transition into kindergarten.

Countdown's programs and activities create a continuum of services that support families from birth through kindergarten entry, including:

  • Talk, Read, Play Campaign
  • Play to Learn Groups
  • Kindergarten Transition Activities

Countdown to Kindergarten is a unique collaboration among the Boston Public Schools, the Office of Mayor Marty Walsh and more than two dozen public and private organizations.
