Register now for READY! For Kindergarten Spring Classes
This FREE program, for parents and caregivers of children ages birth to
5, provides tools for preparing children for kindergarten. Class attendees
will receive important information specific to their child’s age on how they
learn and grow, and receive essential tools and activities that parents and
children can do together to make learning easy and fun!
READY! For Kindergarten is an educational program
for parents that was developed by the Kennewick School District and is
administered by the National Children’s Reading Foundation. As
parents, you want your children to have a happy and successful learning
experience. Often parents wonder what a typical 5-year-old knows, or should
know, the first day of school. There are readiness skills called Kindergarten
Targets. They are not requirements, but learning goals. Children who are taught
these skills at home get off to a great start at school. They start ahead and
stay ahead, year after year.
