WHAT is READY! for Kindergarten?

  • READY! for Kindergarten teaches you how to talk, sing, read and play with children in simple ways that foster essential literacy, math and social-emotional skills.
  • YOU are your child's most powerful teacher. With READY! for Kindergarten you can plant the seeds for success in school and nourish a lifelong love of learning in your child. 
  • We believe that every child is born with the potential to make a unique contribution to our world. Parents and caregivers can learn the skills to unleash a child's potential.
  • READY! classes are designed for parents to help them maximize their role and skills as their child's first and most important teacher.  

Who is eligible to attend?

  • Parent or Legal Guardian of children birth to five years of age who live within the boundaries of the South Kitsap School District.  If you're not sure if you live in the South Kitsap School District, visit our school boundaries page to find out.

    Childcare/Early Learning providers are asked to register with Tracy: or phone @ 360-874-7058.

  • READY! classes are for parents. One set of handouts and tool kit is provided for each child per season, but an adult must attend the class to receive the materials.  We cannot give you tools for someone else's child.  Parent/Guardian may attend and receive one set of tools per child per season – If you feel you need to adjust to a different age class, please only check out one set of tools.

What class do I attend if I have more than one child age birth to five?  

  • Please plan to attend READY! for each child, as sessions are age-appropriate.
