Going into kindergarten is an important and exciting milestone that young children and families will face in September. Along with the excitement, there are often questions about starting school and being ready. COVID presents even more questions for families. It is the partnerships among families, schools, and the community that create the bridges for a smooth transition. It is not too early to start talking with families and building those relationships.
Please join the Friday CAFÉ community to discuss strategies for partnering with families during the transition to kindergarten and get your questions answered. You’ll also learn about new, FREE resources in CT to help families support young children’s development at home.
