South Kitsap School District

Welcome to South Kitsap School District's READY! for KINDERGARTEN.

Registration for winter workshops opens December 16th. This is an opportunity for parents and childcare providers of children ages birth to five that you will want to check out!


  • Choose a date that works for you ~ two adults may attend a session together. Saturday mornings we "workshop" 10:00 - 11:30 and Tues/Thurs evenings 6:00 - 7:30. You will go home with targets and tools to help you maximize your role as your child's first and most influential teacher. 


  • Childcare (appropriate for ages 13 months to 12 years old) is free and fabulous and includes story time with KRL librarians. Children are supervised by SKSD paraprofessionals who engage youngsters with high school teen volunteers. Infants attend class with parents.


  • More than one child age birth to five?  You may attend a session for EACH infant, toddler, or preschool child. Every season (fall, winter, and spring) material is new. Parents who start when your child is an infant may attend all 15 sessions prior to your child beginning kindergarten. Children who start ahead, stay ahead year after year!


  • Childcare provider?  Please enroll in a session by contacting Tracy @ 360.874.7058 or


READY! is research-based, lively, and hands-on. Please plan to come a half hour early your FIRST TIME for an orientation. It will help you understand the amazing possibilities of the first five years of life. Orientation is held in the LIBRARY.


  • If you need to change or cancel a session please do so online or contact Tracy @ 360.874.7058  or ~ doing so will open a spot for another participant to attend READY!
