KinderPrep

KinderPrep is a series of workshops for parents and their preschool children—ages 4-5—who are preparing to enter kindergarten. During the first half of each workshop, parents and children will learn the skills needed for kindergarten. During the second half, they will practice those skills together. Registration required.
