Mission Statement

The mission of Ready, Set, Go! is to create a fun, safe, healthy and educational environment for children of any age that promotes development at all stages through exploration, play and structured activities. This includes the flexibility to take advantage of teachable moments created by child interest or spontaneous events. Teachers will work to create a child friendly world that encourages interest in education, responsible citizenship and independence. Children who outgrow this facility will have the tools to accept the challenges the world presents to them with confidence.  We are also committed to teaching environmentally responsible behavior such as reducing waste, composting, recycling, eating organic and nutritious foods, and conservation.


Ready, Set, Go! Learning Center is currently licensed as a childcare facility with a limit of 20 children ages  2 to 12.  We offer outdoor, nature based and child led programs for ages 2 to 12.  Please select the Parent Handbook tab to learn more about our preschool program and our home school support program.


“My children attended Ready, Set, Go! and LOVED it! My kids knew that they were loved and in a nurturing environment where they were encouraged to be kids. Their days were filled with play that was developmentally appropriate and that sparked their interest and creativity. Marisa has a passion for science that is demonstrated in a variety of ways throughout their days, from gardening or checking out tide pools at the beach to watching animals hatch. A hike was never just a hike; they would geocache, wade in a stream, or turn over a log to see what decomposers were doing to it. This fostered a love of science and a curiosity in the world around them that continues today.  I always knew they would have a fantastic time there!”

“I love this school because you don’t have to wear a mask and you don’t have to sit down all day and you get fresh air and you get to skate and in the summer, you can go swimming in a pond and you have fun and we have a big cabin. Will you please come.” Wyatt Jackson (6)
“I would recommend Ready Set Go 100%! My son attended Marisa’s daycare program starting at age 1 and then afterschool care through Grade 4 right up until the pandemic resulted in closure for in person learning for public schools and childcare. Ryder always looked forward to daycare. RSG has more of a family atmosphere and Marisa is always coming up with fun activities and outings to keep the kids engaged and learning. In 2020 (end of 4th grade), my son really struggled with remote learning. I was struggling to balance my full-time work at home job with his need for my support to get through his virtual school day. We figured we needed to do something different for 20-21 (5th grade), so we decided to pull him out of school and enroll him full time at Ready Set Go for the entire school year. Our son loved outdoor learning and all the amazing hands-on experience Marisa created for the group. The kids weren’t rushed through lesson after lesson. They had time to figure things out and truly understand. Because they weren’t constantly rushed, I believe they had freedom to discover. I am sure it is a year he will look back on fondly someday. I don’t think a lot of kids can say that about the first full school year with Covid regulations. This year our son went back to public school and to my surprise he was at or above where he needed to be starting Middle School and he is still getting 3.2-4 in every class and maintaining all the progress he made with Marisa! He had always struggled to maintain grade level reading and writing but not anymore! I am so happy for him and could not be happier with his experience at RSG. I miss seeing Marisa and the friendly teachers at RSG every day. I know our son is better off today because of all the time he spent over the years with Marisa and the Ready Set Go team.”
