Ready for Pre-K!

Ready for Pre K

Welcome to Ready for Pre-K!

  • Have a toddler or two-year-old?
  • Curious about your child’s development and learning?
  • Wondering how you can help your child get ready for school?
  • Want to learn more about what to expect in Pre-K3?

At DCPS we know that families are children’s first and most important teachers! Long before children start school they are growing and developing key skills that lay the foundation for later learning. In fact, by age 3, nearly 80% of brain development has occurred. The first three years of life are an exciting time for children and their families, and DCPS is her to support you! Ready for Pre-K! is a special DCPS Parent University series for families and caregivers of toddlers and two-year-olds.

These sessions will provide information about growth and development, ways to support your child’s learning at home, and help you to feel confident that your child is Ready for Pre-K!

Each virtual learning session will focus on a different area of learning that is closely related to children’s success in Pre-K and beyond. Sessions will be facilitated by a variety of content experts including DCPS Early Childhood Instructional Specialists, Pre-K teachers, DCPS Early Childhood Family Services Team members and various community partners. Each session will offer the opportunity to ask our experts questions about your child’s development and how you can support their learning at home.
