Kindergarten Bootcamp gives parents tools, information, and activities to help prepare their children for school success in a fun, educational, and interactive setting. Bootcamp consists of seven, one-hour sessions for children who are preparing to enter kindergarten. Under the guidance of an early literacy specialist, parents and caregivers work with their children on foundational skills which have been demonstrated to be the most important for both a successful kindergarten and school experience. As a parent, you will have the opportunity to practice kindergarten readiness skills with your child during class so that you feel confident enough to practice the skills at home. It is important to know that this class is very interactive for both the parent and child, and that participation is expected from both of you. After leaving this class you will have new games, skills, and activities to practice at home that will help your child begin his or her kindergarten year ready to meet the very high expectations of the Arizona Standards.
