Talking About the Preschool Years: Anticipating Full Day Kindergarten

What are the implications of full day kindergarten in Region 4?  Will our schools be ready for this transition?  Will my child be ready?  These are some of the questions that are on parent’s minds as the Region steps into full day kindergarten in September 2012.

A panel discussion led by Region 4 administrators and teachers is scheduled for Monday, November 14, 2011 from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. at Chester Elementary School.  The evening will include panelists: Ian Neviaser, Assistant Superintendent of Schools, Danielle Lipkvich, Essex Elementary School Teacher, Mike Barile, Principal of Chester Elementary School, Meredith Adler, Parent Resource Coordinator at Tri-Town Youth Services.  The evening will be facilitated by Linda Hall, Region 4 Regional Board of Education President.

The evening’s presentation is free, due to a grant from Middlesex United Way and is sponsored by the Early Childhood Council of Deep River, Chester and Essex.  The mission of the Council is to sponsor Early Childhood Scholarships for local families in need and to keep our local families informed on topics related to the needs of families with young children.
