    • Parents or caregivers attend workshops specific to the age of their child.

    • Materials and information presented are tailored to the child’s age group. New materials and information provided at each session.
    • Multiple dates and locations offered for family convenience.
    • If you have multiple children, sign up for two dates or bring an additional adult to attend both workshops.
    • Spanish class offered for Kindergarten Class of 2020 and 2021 at Early Learning Center Workshops
    • READY! classes are for parents.  One set of handouts and tool kit is provided for each child, but an adult must attend the class to receive the materials.  We cannot give you tools for someone else's child.  We suggest bringing a bag with you as you will be unwrapping and using the tools in class and we don't want you to lose any pieces!
    • Sumner-Bonney Lake School District provides the READY! program FREE to families within the school district boundaries.  Out of district families are required to pay one time $25 fee and $60 EACH class to cover the actual costs of the learning tool kits.  
    • You can pay the fee at the sign in table by making a check payable to "Sumner/Bonney Lake Education Foundation."
