Programs & Services - Early Learning - Ready, Set, Learn

Ready, Set, Learn

Each year families and their three- to five-year-olds are invited to their neighbourhood school to attend a fun-filled Ready, Set, Learn event, where they can meet school staff and a variety of community service providers. Ready, Set, Learn is about providing information about how to support a young child’s early learning and development. This is an invitation for all 3-5 year olds to come and play!

The Ministry of Education supports Ready, Set, Learn throughout the province, in collaboration with the Ministry of Children and Family Development, and the Ministry of Health.

Ready, Set, Learn will be hosted by Lord Kelvin Elementary School on April 3, 2020 from 9:30 – 2:30.

All parents/guardians and their three-year-old children are invited to attend New Westminster School District’s Ready, Set, Learn event to take part in play based activities while learning about our programs and services and connecting with community partners.  Come out for our fun-filled event and meet our district staff, teachers and administrators who will help you prepare for Kindergarten.
