LACONIA — The Laconia School District and Lakes Region Community Services (LRCS) Family Resource Center, in partnership with Granite United Way, are again offering READY! for Kindergarten classes for parents who have children newborn to age 5. The classes will be offered on Thursday, January 16, at Pleasant Street School.
All first time attendees are required to attend an orientation from 5:30-6 p.m. to receive their READY! notebook and other materials. Classes immediately follow orientation from 6-7:30 p.m.
This program shares information about the lively early-learning years before a child enters school, which lays the foundation for all future learning. READY! teaches parents how to "Play with a Purpose" which builds strong minds and relationships. Parents learn activities and receive materials to make learning at home fun and effective.
Ready! Classes are free to families in Laconia, and child care is provided. Infants under the age of one attend classes with their parents. Parents pick one class to attend based on the age of their child.
Registration is open now. Space is limited, and registration will be taken on a "first come, first served" basis. Families that have previously attended must re-register each season to secure their spot. Registration is now open on-line at www.readyforkindergarten.org/laconia. Families can also contact Kaitlyn Salome at 524-5710 to register or contact Shannon Robinson-Beland at 581-1571 for more information.
