Kindergarten Readiness Stations

Kindergarten readiness stations are in every library branch and feature fun activities for you and your preschool child to complete together. This month, our stations focus on Social and Emotional Development, which is about learning how to manage feelings, manage friendships, and solve problems. Before kindergarten, children should be able to recognize and identify their own emotions and the emotions of others. They should also be able to communicate a range of emotions in socially accepted ways. Our kindergarten readiness stations offer fun activities to build these skills. Working on these skills now will help children be successful in their interactions with teachers and classmates when they get to school. Stop by any branch to try out our new kindergarten readiness stations and help your child build these important skills.
