WHAT: “Soaring Into Kinder,” a unique event in the city of Wilmington, will include a one-stop-shop of information to help parents prepare their children for kindergarten. Board Member Dr. Richard Vladovic has partnered with Tesoro Corp. to host this exciting and educational event.

Families will learn about:

·         L.A. Unified’s attendance, meal services and homeless education programs.

·         Requirements needed to start kindergarten.

·         How parents can boost early learning for children.

·         Hands-on activities called “teachable moments.” These help parents understand their child’s experiences in kindergarten, and how their child’s motor skills develop at home.

·         Healthy snack options.

Exhibits will include the “Sea Exploration.” This is a state-of-the-art exhibit containing a touch-tank aboard the “Aquarium on Wheels.” Participants will also have an interactive experience on the “G.A.P. STEAM Mobile.” 

"This is a wonderful community event that will provide resources and information to parents that have youngsters about to enter Kindergarten. Getting off to a good start in their educational career is important, and this event can go a long way to building life-long learners,” said Board Member Dr. Richard Vladovic.
