Is my child is ready for kindergarten? Teachers across the country would agree that, for parents, this is the most-asked question during this time of year.
To help answer parents' questions, Worthington Libraries will again partner with area schools and child care centers to present two sessions of the popular program, "Kindergarten: Ready or Not?"
There are many misconceptions about what is important for school success, which is why, as part of the program, a panel of kindergarten teachers from local school districts and private schools will discuss the skills they hope incoming kindergartners will have.
A program is planned at Northwest Library on January 11 featuring panelists from the Smoky Row Children's Center, Worthington Schools, Dublin Schools and Olentangy Schools. Old Worthington Library's panel on Jan. 26 will include a representative from the Smoky Row Children's Center, Worthington Schools, Olentangy Schools and Worthington Christian.
Both programs will begin at 7 pm.
Both panels will also include librarians, who will discuss the library's many resources, including books about the first day of kindergarten and what to expect as well as books that can help parents understand how their children learn to read and what kind of activities they can do with their children to help them develop important skills for kindergarten.
