School Readiness Symposium Praised

Over 175 people attended our School Readiness Symposium "The Arts Work in Early Childhood" featuring Akua Kouyate-Tate, Senior Director of Wolf Trap Education on May 12, 2015 at Martin's Crosswinds in Greenbelt, Maryland. "It is always a pleasure to attend the Symposia provided by Ready At Five.  I can't think of another organization in our state that provides such great opportunities for education professionals to attend and receive high quality, current, research based and relevant information as frequently as Ready At Five.  The format offers fabulous key note messages, individual workshops allow participants to select one that might address their needs or interest, and the day allows for networking with colleagues and the opportunity to meet new friends. Each Symposium is different from the one before and I always look forward to the next!" -Laura Suguiyama, Early Childhood Educational Consultant and Independent Trainer


Help Your Child Build Good Social Skills with our May ParentTip

Social skills are the skills that help people live, work, and play together.  These “people” skills are how we behave and interact with others. They impact how other people treat us and how we get along in the world.  Some good people skills are:  courteous, fair, helpful, honest, kind, patient, positive attitude and respectful.  One of the best ways to help your child build good social skills is to be a good role model!  It is one of the best things you can do.  Your child watches you and gets clues about what to do and how to act.  Make sure to check out our May ParentTip on Building Good Social Skills  to get some more ideas on how to help your child!
