4 R’s for Readiness: Preparing Pre-Schoolers for Kindergarten

October 29, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am


You must register on Facebook to attend this event.

Please join us for 4 R’s for Readiness (Routines, Requirements, Relationships, Right Fit), an informative program focused on preparing your preschool-age child for kindergarten and a lifetime love of learning.

Do you ever find yourself asking questions like:

How will I know when my child is ready for Kindergarten?

What skills does my child need to be prepared for formal schooling? (social, emotional, physical, cognitive, etc.)

What experiences can I provide my child with that can help prepare them for school?

What do teachers look for when assessing kindergarten students?

All of these questions will be answered and more!

$5 per adult and FREE childcare is provided for the first 20 children registered.
