Ready, Set, Learn
Ready, Set, Learn is a program designed to support you in helping your preschooler get ready for school. As your child’s first and most important teacher, you play a primary role in preparing your child for school. Your child’s entry into Kindergarten is an important milestone in life. Beginning school well makes a big difference in terms of future success in the education system and even on into adulthood.
Many things contribute to a child's readiness for school. Some of these are:
• Relationships with friends;
• Language development;
• The ability to communicate thoughts, needs and desires;
• The ability to follow instructions and routines; and
• An environment that cultivates creativity, motivation, cooperation and persistence.
As part of the Ready, Set, Learn program, the elementary schools in Okanagan Skaha School District No. 67 will schedule a time for you and your three-year-old to visit. Information regarding the District's StrongStart programs will be available. You are encouraged to contact the elementary school closest to your residence and advise of your interest in participating with your three-year-old at the school’s Ready, Set, Learn presentation in the Spring.
