READY! for Kindergarten parent workshops

READY! for Kindergarten parent workshops
Posted on 11/13/2019
Parents of children ages 2-5 (not yet in kindergarten) are invited to register for the READY! for Kindergarten workshops, which help prepare children for school success.

The program teaches parents how to help their children learn through play, using methods such as “counting all day” (tickling in patterns, counting buttons or the number of people ahead of you in line at the grocery store) and other specific ideas, materials and toys.

Workshops are scheduled at Lake Wilderness Elementary for three dates, from 6-7:30 p.m. on Jan. 15, March 4 and April 1; and are organized by age range for parents of children ages 2-3; 3-4 and 4-5. Childcare is available.

The cost of the workshops is $150. Scholarships are available, and are provided by Maple Valley Rotary.

Materials that parents take home include a binder of age-appropriate learning targets, resources and materials/toys such as special puzzles and games to help parents teach their children through play-based activities.

If you do not have children in the 2-5 age range but know someone in the Tahoma School District who does and who may be interested, please share this information with them.
