Richmond School District's Ready Set Learn events are a great way to spend time with your preschooler and see our Richmond schools, meet some of our staff and connect with community partners. All together, 12 events will be held for children under 5 and their families. These events are held at various elementary schools in Richmond on Wednesday mornings from 9:30-11:00 and in the afternoon from 1:00-2:30. The focus for Ready Set Learn is to have fun while developing literacy skills. We have been using First Nations puppets, puzzles, and stories at our events and found this to be very engaging. In addition there is play dough, sensory materials, arts and crafts and small blocks. Our local children's entertainer, Will Stroet, performs a lively 30-minute concert for the families with one or two songs performed in French! Ready Set Learn events are our School District's way of sharing information on how young children learn. Our StrongStart educators and Early Learning Teacher Consultant are there to answer questions and to welcome you! Every year more and more families come out and enjoy these events. We look forward to seeing you and your children.
