In partnership with Vroom, BY5 works toward achieving parent success, school readiness and grade-level reading. 

Vroom, with strong support from the Bezos Family Foundation, provides materials and resources to aid families in recognizing when their behavior is stimulating their child’s brain in a positive way. Through these efforts, Vroom strives to inform parents that they have the skills to benefit their child’s development. For more information and Vroom videos, visit www.joinvroom.org/about.
