Ready, Set, Learn Service Provider Fair

Opportunities for parents and children to learn, have fun

Parents and their children up to five years old are invited to attend the Ready, Set, Learn Service Provider Fair at their catchment area schools.

Folks will be able to meet service providers and StrongStart educators, learn about resources, play, read, sing and make music, enjoy snacks and take home a free book.

Ready, Set, Learn is a school readiness initiative sponsored by the Ministry of Education in collaboration with the Ministry of Children and Family Development and the Ministry of Health.

The program provides an opportunity for elementary schools offering kindergarten to influence school readiness of children.

Ready, Set, Learn is intended to facilitate partnerships between schools and local community agencies and early childhood service providers. Through this program, families may begin positive connections with the school system and with participating community agencies.

What is its purpose?

Elementary schools and local community partners will make early connections with families with young children.

Families will receive helpful information and community contacts.

Schools will have the opportunity to promote their programs and services to families – to showcase their schools.

Community partners/agencies can provide advice and information to parents about services in the community.
