Starting kindergarten is a big academic and social step, for both parents and their children. This workshop will help families prepare their child(ren) and themselves for the transition into public elementary schools. Topics include tips on preparing your child for kindergarten, parents/guardians roles, ways to be involved, and practical advice from experienced parents and teachers.

The workshop is free and will be offered at select San Francisco Public Branch libraries, through the summer. If you know of incoming K families, please pass this information along.
