Preparing Your Child for Kindergarten
The goal is to help all parents in the community prepare their children for the academic and social components of kindergarten and to help children learn what they should know by the time they start school. Data indicates that children who start school below grade level struggle to achieve and tend to have very low achievement through all grades.
Three READY! for Kindergarten parent classes are provided each year, in September, January, and May, for parents of children ages 0-5. The first 25 parents at each site are provided free materials and tools (a $60 value), which includes toys and children’s books, to help you give your child a great foundation for Kindergarten. Free childcare is available during the classes.
