Supporting School Readiness

The Supporting School Readiness Program works with children and their families in the year prior to entry into kindergarten.   

The Getting Ready for Kindergarten (GR4K) Program offers rising kindergarteners the opportunity to attend a facilitated playgroup session using the Second Step Early Learning Program.    Sessions are free and available at multiple sites in Wake County beginning in October 2015.  Participants will attend a total of 28 sessions, one session per week from October to May.  During the sessions, parent/caregivers stay on site and are able to meet with a parent educator for group discussions  focused on how best to prepare their children for kindergarten.  Families with limited income who have an upcoming kindergartner without preschool/childcare experience may apply to participate in this program.

Applications will be available in the fall. At that time you can download an application on this page.
