Parents of preschool age children can learn more about kindergarten at a series of Parent Academy meetings this school year.
The six workshops will be held from 5:45 – 7 p.m. at Clinton Park Elementary School on Arrow Drive, and are free to attend. The program is offered through a grant from the Barksdale Reading Institute.
“Parents will learn tips and strategies to prepare their children for success in kindergarten,” said Clinton Park Principal Kelli Pope.
Topics covered include literacy, math and general development. Workshops include simple, daily things that parents can do with their children to help them prepare for kindergarten and to be in a classroom setting.
All materials will be provided at no cost, and childcare and snacks will be provided for children ages 3-10.
“All participants will be entered to win a door prize at each session,” Pope said. “
