Kindergarten preview held for parents and kids

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — Parents and kids learned what it takes to be “school-ready” at the second annual “Kindergarten Here I Come” event.

Hosted by the Mahoning County Early Childhood Partners Committee, the exhibit features various activities and services available to children. Those in attendance received information about children’s health and nutrition, after school childcare, and childhood development.

“It’s so important just to have those early intervention skills to know about what’s going on with my child and where they are on that development continuum and how important it is just to be school readiness with all the accountability right now we want to make sure that our children get that head start that they need,” said Head Start Deputy Director Camille Stanford.

Some kids even got finger printed by Mahoning County Sheriff’s Deputies for their very own ID kits.
