READY! for Kindergarten

Birth to 5: Preparing Children for School Success

From birth to age 5, a child learns faster than at any other time in his or her life. Those early learning experiences influence success in school and beyond. Data shows students who start school ahead, stay ahead. Learn what you can do to nurture a child's development in their earliest  years, preparing their minds for all future learning.

Our READY! parent workshops provide age-appropriate targets and training in the areas of language and literacy, math and reasoning, and social-emotional. Purposeful play and 20 minutes of daily read aloud make a difference that lasts a lifetime.

Any parent, guardian, or childcare provider living within the boundaries of South Kitsap School District, can attend this FREE training.

If you have more than one child in this age range, please sign up for each class needed.

Parents new to READY! will start with a brief Orientation followed by their age appropriate fall workshop. Orientation is a one-time program overview that covers all age groups for families new to the READY! for Kindergarten® program.

Tool pick up - At the end of the workshop, you will be asked to answer a few questions, select a time for you to pick up your READY! learning tools, and answer a short survey. Notate the date and time for your tool pick up. Pick up your tools on the date you chose. Parents who are new to READY! will also pick up an Orientation kit at this time. We will follow up with an e-mail reminder and instructions for tool pick up one-two days before your requested pick up date.
