We send low-income preschoolers into kindergarten above grade level.
Who We Are
Who We Are
10 Books A Home (10BH), a nonprofit founded in 2009, is solving the kindergarten-readiness crisis. In the US, low-income children enter kindergarten between 1-1.5 years below grade level. In 2015, 41% of US children were low-income, meaning that almost half of US children are starting kindergarten behind. This is the kindergarten-readiness crisis.
What We Do
We are solving the kindergarten-readiness crisis by tutoring low-income preschoolers in their motivations. We are experts in channeling children's energy into learning that builds in challenge and novelty. For eight years, we have prepared low-income children for kindergarten success. See what we do.
Who We Serve
We offer ILM Method tutoring to low-income preschoolers who live in communities where most children start kindergarten 1-1.5 years behind. We serve children of all learning abilities, including typically developing children, special needs, and English learners.
Learners We Prepare For Kindergarten
Learners are the preschool-aged children who receive ILM Method tutoring every week for two years from our motivation cultivators. Because parents participate in every tutoring session and support their children's learning between sessions, learners have their motivations cultivated full time. Here are some of the faces we’ve empowered to succeed in kindergarten.
