If you are interested in enrolling in the School Readiness or Peer program please complete an application and submit it to the School Readiness office.

Please help prepare your child to be “school ready”! We need your support! Look below and you will see some suggestions:

  • Read to your child EVERY day- for at least 20 minutes – make it fun and interesting!
  • Visit our local library- they have numerous events for you!
  • Ask your child open ended questions beginning with words such as “who, what, where, when… you want them to reply with more than “yes” or “no “answers!
  • Have your child read environmental print: road signs, store names, cereal boxes…
  • Have them pretend to play school; let them take the role as both teacher and student!
  • Encourage play dates- so they can learn to get along with other children and learn to wait and share!
  • Attend your Elementary School’s Parent Night- for new parents of Kindergarten Children!

You will be receiving a transition folder from the Bristol Public Schools which has information to assist you in the transition to kindergarten. Please use the information in the folder to help you navigate the process of transitioning to kindergarten. Take the time to start working on specific skills your child will need to help make their kindergarten year successful.
