Kindergarten Readiness Program ~


You are invited to participate in a very exciting opportunity to get your child ready for school!


This summer, United Way of Kootenai County partnered with area agencies to bring a proven kindergarten readiness program to local communities. The pilot program provided 30 families with games, books and activities to help prepare their pre-k children for kindergarten. 


Thanks to the fundraising efforts of our UPS Golf Classic and a very generous donation from Alliance Data, we are launching a full program in January where 150 families will benefit from the free program.


The program is a collaboration between many nonprofit agencies in Kootenai County. Since its inception, United Way of Kootenai County has brought together representatives from Mountain States Early Head Start, NIC Head Start, Panhandle Health District, ICARE St. Vincent De Paul, and has recently welcomed NIC's Children's Center, and the Coeur d'Alene, Post Falls, and Lakeland School Districts.


Ready! for Kindergarten is a quality informational training program FREE for North Idaho residents. The program informs parents and caregivers how to prepare children for a happy and successful

school experience by focusing on language and literacy.


Each course consists of three 2-hour classes throughout the school year. Classes are available for parents of children 0-5 years and are being held in several communities across Kootenai County.


FREE child care is provided on site. You’ll leave each class with educational tools and activities to help ensure your little family member is ready for the years ahead.

Dates have been set for full program and will begin on January 10th, so be sure to sign up soon to reserve your spot. If you know of someone with a child under 5 years old, tell them about the program! For more information or to sign up call 208-667-8112 ext.104 or go online to register or get more details.
