What to Expect the Year Before KindergartenDo you have a child that will be entering Kindergarten in the Fall of 2020? If so, the Proctor/Hermantown Early Childhood Program wants to partner with you in preparing your child for Kindergarten! Just as the preschool years represent a time of great cognitive and behavioral growth, they likewise constitute a period of "blossoming" within the brain with many of the most dynamic and elaborative developmental changes taking place. The experiences, relationships and opportunities that you provide your child now will support this development.This evening session will provide activities for parents and children that will support the skills children need to succeed in school including language and literacy, mathematical thinking and personal and social skills. Information and ideas on how parents can support their child's learning at home will also be offered. Children will have the opportunity to explore early childhood classrooms and enjoy a snack while parents meet with early childhood teachers who will share valuable information on the development of social and academic skills in preschool. If questions, please call our office at 729-9563.ON-LINE REGISTRATION WILL END APPROXIMATELY 4 DAYS PRIOR TO THE EVENT.
