Kids and parents in our community have wrestled with a challenging school year. Some kids may even be getting ready to go back to in-person school to finish the spring semester. But what about the fall, and beyond?
The pandemic has impacted the 2020–21 school year in a variety of ways. YDL wants to make sure we’re helping minimize the confusion of parents and kids starting school in Fall 2021!
For the past two years, YDL offered a space for parents to meet representatives from a variety of preschools and kindergartens. In this setting, parents could easily gather information to make a decision about which program was the best fit for their little one.
Though we can’t host the event in person this year, we’re offering parents the chance to browse local school options virtually on our website. Visit ypsilibrary.org/school-readiness for information and links to schools, along with activities you can do to make sure your child has the skills to start school successfully.
Supply kits to help kids learn to cut with scissors, write their name, practice early math skills, and more will be available beginning April 2. If your preschool would like to be included on our school readiness resource page, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
