Free Program: Is Your Kid Ready for Kindergarten?

Northampton Community College will hold a free program on kindergarten readiness Tuesday, Jan. 29

Northampton Community College's Reibman Hall and Hannig Family Children's Centers will host "Kindergarten Readiness: Tips to Help Your Child Succeed" on Tuesday, January 29, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. The program will be led by Denise Continenza of the Penn State Cooperative Extension. The program will be held in College Center 117 at NCC's Main Campus in Bethlehem Township, and will be livestreamed to the Monroe Campus in Video Conference Room 141.

The interactive workshop will feature a question-and-answer session with a panel of early childhood experts, including an experienced kindergarten parent, a kindergarten teacher, a pediatrician, and a family educator. The panel will help parents and grandparents learn how to prepare children for their transition year, and identify activities to promote school readiness. 

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 610-332-6084 or email Janette Zuk, family success coordinator, at jzuk@northampton.edu. Since the workshop is intended for adults, please make arrangements for childcare.

of course the issue of early admission may be moot if your local school slams that door shut in what may be a misguided effort to close the door on early admissions via charter schools.......
