• Ready for Kindergarten

    If you are a parent or know a parent of a newborn baby through age 5, we advise you to acquire knowledge of our Pasco Ready for Kindergarten program . The Pasco READY! for Kindergarten program is a FREE program to ALL Pasco parents, and ALL parents with young children are encouraged to participate. 

    Children are born learning! They naturally love to explore and understand the world around them. The READY! for Kindergarten school readiness programs empower parents to succeed in their role as their child's first and most influential teacher.  It gives parents information and activities known to be highly predictive of later school success.  The tools and activities provided optimize their child's natural curiosity and nurture learning and development.  

    We are offering a new way to experience READY! for Kindergarten. Parents can participate in the new E-Learning workshops from the comfort of their own home and on their own time. There are three E-Learning workshops each year (Fall, Winter, and Spring). 

    The Spring E-Learning workshops are currently being offered through May 31st, 2022 

    After the workshop is completed, parents will ​receive tools used to play with a purpose and help reduce potential barriers for success. These tools include books, toys, games, puzzles, music CDs, and more to support the developmental targets.  READY! also emphasizes how to use everyday items and activities for learning and development during daily routines.

    If you are a Kennewick resident, call 509-222-5035, Richland residents call your district to check on what programs are available for you. 

    READY! is a lifestyle: Read with your child 20 minutes a day and play a READY! activity for 10 minutes. 

    Getting ready for kindergarten begins at birth! 


    Ways you can register:


    Parents will view a E-Learning Spring workshop in their READY! account and complete an evaluation at the end. Parents will receive take home tools to begin "playing with a purpose" with their children after the evaluation has been submitted. 


    Tools will be provided after you have completed the virtual workshop and evaluation.
