United Way of Whatcom County produced 6,000 kindergarten readiness calendars that are available at local schools, libraries, and early learning centers. The calendars are free to families with children in preschool and kindergarten in Whatcom County and are available in English and Spanish.
The calendars are part of United Way’s effort to increase access to early learning and promote early literacy. They provide ideas for turning everyday activities into learning opportunities, suggestions for establishing routines, and field trip ideas. They also include contact information for Whatcom County schools and libraries and a list of educational websites.
The project was made possible through a partnership with Boeing, Washington State Department of Early Learning, and Washington Head Start.
