Dean College to Present Seminar on Kindergarten
Dean College Children's Center will be holding a seminar for the parents of kindergarten students.
Dean College Children's Center is sponsoring "Parent Seminar: Kindergarten, Here I Come," on Monday, Feb. 25, from 7-9 p.m. at the Dean College Campus Guidrey Center on Emmons Street, Franklin. Parking is at 89 West Central Street.
The panel seminar focuses developmental aspects of a child’s growth – social, cognitive, emotional, fine motor, and gross motor skills. Questions concerning “What is readiness?”, “What do Kindergarten teachers expect my child to know”, and “How to know if my child needs a gift of another year in preschool?” will be addressed. The panel will examine which aspects are considered by parents and educators when gauging a child’s “readiness” for Kindergarten.
Parents of young children and educators are encouraged to attend. This panel seminar is interactive and those attending are encouraged to bring questions. Panel members include indergarten teachers from the area, with insight from educators of Dean Children’s Center. Admission for the public is $10 at the door.
Dean College Children's Center is a non-profit, NAEYC accredited preschool providing children with an initial school experience that reflects current research in child development and offers a hands-on experience for Early Childhood Education students preparing for careers in education.
