Parents are a child's most powerful teacher

The READY! for Kindergarten program is designed to help parents prepare their children with the early learning skills needed to start and stay at grade level throughout their scholastic career. You, the parent or caregiver, are your child's most powerful teacher.

With READY! for Kindergarten, you plant the seeds for success in school and a lifelong love of learning for your child. Kennewick School District partners with The Children's Reading Foundation of the Mid-Columbia to offer READY! for Kindergarten classes for parents throughout the year.

The classes encourage parents to talk, sing, read and play with their child in simple ways that foster essential pre-literacy, pre-math and social-emotional skills. Age-appropriate activities are designed to begin at birth and continue through age 5. The curriculum is based on current research and replicates what parents and educators of successful students have done for years.

Each interactive E Learning workshop takes approximately 60 minutes with the ability to stop and start as your schedule allows.
