Grants Pass School District is continuing the program called READY! for Kindergarten this spring. The program invites families of 4 and 5 year olds who will be entering Kindergarten September of 2019. READY! for Kindergarten teams teachers and families together to help children be ready for a happy and successful school experience. Research shows that 5 year olds who are ready for school start ahead and stay ahead year after year.
Through a series of three classes, families learn about 26 age-appropriate skills that a typical 5 year old needs to be familiar with by the time they start Kindergarten. Families receive a different FREE kit for each class they attend containing age-appropriate learning materials for them to use with their child at home. Tools include such things as floor puzzles, colorful wooden shapes, blocks, magnetic letters and numbers and audio CD’s.
