Dean College Children’s Center Parent Seminar: “Kindergarten, Here I Come.”January 7, 2013
Dean College Children's Center is sponsoring "Parent Seminar: Kindergarten, Here I Come," on Monday, February 25, 2013 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at the Dean College Campus Guidrey Center on Emmons Street, Franklin. Parking is at 89 West Central Street.
The panel seminar focuses developmental aspects of a child’s growth – social, cognitive, emotional, fine motor, and gross motor skills. Questions concerning “What is readiness?”, “What do Kindergarten teachers expect my child to know”, and “How to know if my child needs a gift of another year in preschool?” will be addressed. The panel will examine which aspects are considered by parents and educators when gauging a child’s “readiness” for Kindergarten.
Parents of young children and educators are encouraged to attend. This panel seminar is interactive and those attending are encouraged to bring questions. Panel members include fabulous Kindergarten teachers from the area, with insight from educators of Dean Children’s Center. Admission for the public is $10 at the door.
