Are you a parent of a child birth to 5 years (pre-K) living in Kennewick?  90-minute workshops are for YOU!  Everyone is welcome to attend these fun, informative and relaxed atmosphere workshops. 

If this is your first workshop, you are required to attend a one-time Orientation which starts 30 minutes prior to your class. You will receive a notebook with important information that you will use during all your sessions.  When you enroll in your first 90-minute workshop, you will be automatically signed up for the Orientation.  

If you have already attended READY! and do not have a notebook, please drop into any session's orientation to receive your notebook which includes the game board used in many sessions.  

  • All participants need to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to their start time to allow time to check in and get to their workshop. We will need to reschedule those who arrive more than 15 minutes late.

  • You will be placed in the age group based on when your child starts Kindergarten.

  • We provide free childcare through the YMCA while parents are in the workshops for children 1-12 years. Childcare is by reservation. When you register for your workshop you will be asked if you need childcare.  Children ages 1-12 years will not be allowed to attend the workshop with their parents.  

  • Each workshop for Fall, Winter, and Spring session provides different topics. You will receive a wide variety of toys, books and information. If you start attending sessions when your child is a newborn and continue until your child is five (pre-K), you will attend 16 different classes. 

  • We encourage you to attend workshops for each of your children; however, you only need to attend one orientation.

  • Parents who work for the Kennewick School District and those who live within Kennewick School District attend for free.

  • Those who live outside of the Kennewick School District pay $102 for your first session and $74 for each 90 minute session after that.

  • Workshops are held at various schools in the KSD. You are welcome to attend whichever is most convenient to you.

We love referrals! Each time you refer someone new to READY! you both receive a free book to build your child's library!  Let us know when you attend that you have either referred a friend or were referred by someone.
