Ready, Set, Learn is an initiative that recognizes that families need positive connections with the school system and community agencies that provide relevant resources and information. All public elementary schools in Southeast Kootenay School District will be offering an opportunity for all three to five year olds to come to their neighbourhood school (children born in 2013, 2014 & 2015 (who have turned three by the date of the RSL event). This event is a partnership between the province, the district, and the early childhood teachers in Cranbrook, Fernie, Sparwood, Jaffray, and Elkford.
Ready, Set, Learn will include opportunities such as a tour of the school, a visit to the kindergarten classroom, activities, refreshments, displays or presentations by school children.
Parents and caregivers will receive helpful tips for supporting their preschooler's learning and development. They will also be given information about local services available.
Four year olds, those children who will be entering Kindergarten in September 2018, will also be invited to Kindergarten Orientation at their neighborhood school.
