READY! For Kindergarten

READY! For Kindergarten

READY! for Kindergarten, a nationally-recognized program for parents of children from birth to age five, provides free classes three times a year in Sandpoint. These classes are for parents and other legal guardians of children from 0 – five years who live within the Lake Pend Oreille School District. First-time participants attend a 30-minute orientation, then take a 90-minute class with other parents of children of the same age. In these fun, hands-on classes led by trained facilitators, parents are encouraged to talk, laugh, sing and play with fun, high-quality toys, games, books and activities. Parents then take home these free “tools” to enjoy with their children. READY! makes learning enjoyable for the whole family. Remember: Children who start school ahead, stay ahead… year after year!
