Events to help determine kindergarten readiness

FAIRFIELD — A Fairfield-Suisun Adult School program will offer workshops on two days in February to help parents determine if their children are ready for kindergarten.

The Kindergarten Readiness Roundup will offer staggered times for several target elementary schools. A representative from each target school will be available during the scheduled time.

While several schools are targeted, children expecting to enter kindergarten at any local school are invited. In addition, if parent and child are unable to attend the session corresponding to their prospective school, they can attend another session, said Cheryl Stumbaugh, a department official at the Adult School.

“I want parents to know their options,” Stumbaugh said.

Stumbaugh emphasized the importance of children being armed with the correct “tools” as they start school.

“If kids start and they fail, or it’s too difficult . . . they’re going to drop out,” she said.

The first date is Saturday at the Fairfield-Suisun Adult School, 900 Travis Blvd. From 10 a.m. to noon is for children entering kindergarten at Anna Kyle Elementary School, from noon to 2 p.m. is for David Weir Elementary School and from 2 to 4 p.m. is for Cleo Gordon Elementary School.

The Feb. 23 date is at Sheldon Elementary School, 1901 Woolner Ave. Evaluations will be done from 10 a.m. to noon on children headed to kindergarten at Sheldon, from noon to 2 p.m. for Suisun Elementary School and from 2 to 4 p.m. for Fairview Elementary School.

Fun activities will be used to evaluate each child. Backpacks and school supplies will be given to the children who participate. Free dental screenings, check-ups and fluoride treatments will be offered on Feb. 23 only.

Both days are funded by First 5 Solano.
