Ready Together – School Success 

Be a Ready Parent and raise a Ready Child!  Support your 2- to 6- year old’s early brain development and bring them to school ready to make friends and enjoy learning.  Learn how to build skills in your children that research shows are the most important for school success.  Parents will learn techniques to teach children how to express feelings, calm down, share, wait and take turns.  You’ll learn ways to help a child stick with it when learning a new task and steps you can teach them to solve real-life problems.  We’ll talk about effective ways to build children’s knowledge of shapes, numbers, and early reading skills too.

Classes in Halsey, Brownsville, and Corvallis beginning in April. See our calendar for dates.

This class is made possible through a partnership of Presbyterian PCCC and LBCC Parenting Education
