'Getting Ready for Kindergarten' Launches

With generous contributions from Apple Federal Credit Union Education Foundation and Wells Fargo, Fairfax Futures has established a new initiative to improve school readiness. Getting Ready for Kindergarten focuses on supporting local family child care providers who are caring for rising kindergarteners. On Saturday, June 18,  the providers attended a workshop at which they practiced strategies that teach young children to take turns, ask questions, and cooperate with others. Over the course of the summer, these early childhood professionals will continue to partner with families to support children's smooth transition to kindergarten. Getting Ready for Kindergarten is offered in partnership with the Fairfax County Office for Children.
