Garthwood Park Public School will host the Welcome to Kindergarten Great Read Aloud event on Wednesday, Oct. 23, beginning at 9 a.m. and 12:45 p.m.
Kindergarten children and their families who attended the Welcome to Kindergarten orientations in the spring are invited to attend. Nancy Vail, Welcome to Kindergarten Peel program manager, will be assisting and providing reading tips for parents. Directors from the Erin Mills Youth Centre and the YMCA will be reading The 10 Drowsy Dinosaurs, a book the children received during their orientation, and puppets will be provided to the children.
Garthwood Park is located 3245 Colonial Dr., in Mississauga.
Welcome to Kindergarten is designed to help prepare preschoolers for a positive start to their school journey. Parents and their children attend spring and fall Welcome to Kindergarten orientation sessions at their neighbourhood schools, where they receive a bag of early learning and literacy resources developed by The Learning Partnership and learn how to use them at home.
