Ready for Kindergarten?

By Rachel Grant Posted on 08/23/16

A child’s brain develops most rapidly in the first 5 years of life. This means that brain building doesn’t start when kids walk into the classroom, it happens in every single moment throughout a child’s day from the day they are born. As a parent, you have a wonderful opportunity to take a positive and proactive role in supporting early brain development which primes your child for success in kindergarten.

Want to learn some easy ways to help get your child ready for school? READY! for Kindergarten workshops are coming up in the Amity, Yamhill Carlton, Dayton, McMinnville, Sheridan, Newberg, and Willamina school districts! To find a class near you go to the Ready! website.

At some of these workshops you may see some Vroom tip cards. Vroom is a new initiative that empowers parents and caregivers to play a proactive role in their children’s early brain development. Check out their Daily Vroom app to have easy, free brain building activities sent right to your phone.
