Bedtime in a Box has been highly successful in improving early indicators of success for children.
Since we started delivering Boxes, we’ve seen families reading significantly more with their children each week. We’ve also seen the number of families implementing a consistent bedtime routine nearly double. This data represents an increase in oral language development and improvements in sleeping patterns that support the development of healthy minds and bodies of children.
In our first year, we provided our Boxes to over 600 low-income families in Baltimore. Since then, demand for our program has continued to grow, and as of today we have delivered over 12,400 Boxes. These Boxes represent $1.87 million worth of resources, including more than 62,000 new books and 137,000 additional bedtime materials, all going into the homes of families that need them most.
