Event description
Your child is getting ready to take a big step! We can help you help her have a strong start to kindergarten.

About this Event

After spending months at home, children entering kindergarten face a unique set of challenges. It will take a diverse support network to ensure that they begin their formative educational years on the right foot, giving them a healthy start for the next 12 years.

The transition to kindergarten can be difficult for the most well-adjusted preschool student. But with more time spent at home this spring, new procedures (wearing a mask, different schedules, etc.) in place and fewer in-person readiness events this year’s kindergarteners are in for new challenges and will need an even stronger social and emotional stamina. How do we ensure that these students and their parents have the resources they need to succeed?

A panel of experts, ranging from education to mental health and well-being to social learning and parenting will offer perspectives on how to help your child have the best start to their very first year in elementary school!
