Early Learning Jamboree and Kindergarten Registration
Early learning matters. Studies show that children who have been engaged in early learning opportunities are more likely to grow into healthy, capable, and contributing adults.
We are lucky to have many resources in our community for young children. Whether it is a preschool program, organized sports, or playing at a park, our children have the opportunity to learn and grow in a healthy environment.
The Peninsula School district is proud to be a part of this community and is looking for ways to connect families with these resources.
On Saturday, March 21, 2015 from 11:00-1:00, these partners will come together at the Tom Taylor YMCA for the Early Learning Jamboree and Kindergarten Registration Kickoff!
Come play at the Y, visit with our preschool partners, register for Kindergarten, and meet our community resources. Children will have the opportunity to play age appropriate activities, get their hands dirty with the Tacoma Children’s Museum, and enjoy a healthy lunch! Parents can meet with a variety of community preschools, learn about great summer programs, sports teams, and getting ready for Kindergarten!
Transportation will be provided from the Key Peninsula Schools.
Registering for Kindergarten early is important for many reasons. One is you will learn about all the exciting events coming before school starts in the fall. Another is a chance to meet school staff, and friends who might be in your child’s class next year. It also helps schools plan for how many classrooms and teachers they will need. Registration kicks off on March 21st but parents can still register for the 2015-2016 Kindergarten school year during school hours at your local school after March 23rd. Forms are available online or at your local school. All registration information will be available at the Early Learning Jamboree as well.
