- The Greenfield Collaborative Action Team will host its second annual Kinder Family Festival for parents and families of 4 – 5 year olds on Wednesday, March 15th from 3pm to 7pm at Memorial Hall. The festival will provide suggestions of family activities to do at home that boost a child’s readiness for kindergarten to:
- Increase access, awareness and participation in activities and resources that improve children’s Kinder readiness;
- Honor cultural identities by celebrating the assets and strengths to ultimately reinforce that parents and guardians are a child’s first teachers
- Provide wraparound services for families that may not be connected.
We hope you will join us to prepare our children for
success during their earliest years. For more
information and updates about the Kinder Family
Festival, please visit:
