What is READY! for Kindergarten?

READY! for Kindergarten is a program for parents/caregivers that helps them prepare their children for a happy and successful school experience. The workshop consists of three, 90-minute sessions. Each session has a different theme (language & literacy, math & reasoning, social & emotional). Parents receive a binder containing 26 age-appropriate targets for all age ranges (0-5), resources, materials (toys/games) and training on how to use the resources and materials to help their children work toward being ready for kindergarten.

What do the workshops entail?

Parents attend three, 90-minute sessions and learn how to use the resources and materials/toys provided to help their child meet the age-appropriate targets in the following areas (language and literacy, math and reasoning, social and emotional). Tahoma teachers present the information and allow time for practice with the materials, interactions with other parents, and questions. Click here to view the workshop materials.
