Learning Center Helps Families Become Kindergarten-Ready

Pennsylvania College of Technology’s Dunham Children’s Learning Center hosted an information session Thursday for families whose children will enter kindergarten in August.

Barbara J. Albert, director, and Linda S. Dellaquila, group leader, shared tips for making a smooth transition and provided families with the dates and registration requirements of all school districts in Lycoming County.

They also provided information about how to register with “ReadyRosie,” a web-based resource recently funded by the Lycoming County Commissioners in collaboration with the Lycoming County Early Learning Team. Any resident of Lycoming County can subscribe for free to receive two-minute “Modeled Moment” videos to their email or cellphone. “ReadyRosie” (and “ReadyBaby”) videos provide simple ideas that real families in real environments can implement to connect fun activities with learning opportunities. There are different “Modeled Moments” for different age groups and they are available in both English and Spanish. In addition to receiving a short video each week, those registered will have access to an entire library of “Modeled Moments” concentrating on many different aspects of child development and learning.

Anyone living in Lycoming County with a child from birth through third grade can register via computer, tablet or smartphone by inputting their ZIP code and following the prompts.

Albert is a member of the LCELT team, comprising representatives of child care programs, school districts, Head Start, Early Head Start, Early Intervention, Nurse-Family Partnerships, The Pennsylvania Office of Child Development and Early Learning, and the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
