Kinder­garten Just Around The Cor­ner

MidWeek Islander (Windward Oahu) - - Windward Oahu Islander -

Chil­dren who turn 5 by July 31 will be head­ing to kinder­garten at Hawaii public schools, and the Wind­ward Dis­trict DOE wants to help them get ready.

Par­ent ed­u­ca­tor Kathy Bent­ley will lead a free work­shop Thurs­day night to ease the tran­si­tion. The pro­gram, “Pre­par­ing for Kinder­garten,” is from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Ben Parker El­e­men­tary School.

Top­ics in­clude skills needed, ac­tiv­i­ties to pre­pare your child, how to eval­u­ate readi­ness and other ex­pec­ta­tions.

Re­fresh­ments and free child­care also will be pro­vided. For more in­for­ma­tion and to reg­is­ter, call 235-7747.

Co-spon­sors are Ka­mala­pua o Ko‘ olau and Ka­neohe Com­mu­nity Fam­ily Cen­ter.
