This parent and family involvement program supports child development, school readiness, and healthy parenting. Parents will learn techniques to help their child develop academic, social, emotional, motor and language skills.

Entering kindergarten is a major transition in the life of a child and his or her parents. Kids need to be ready for school, and schools need to be ready for kids. That’s why Gearing Up for Kindergarten offers educational classes that prepare parents and their children for success in school.

The Gearing Up for Kindergarten curriculum is available to schools, parent education programs, and other organizations.
