Parents and guardians of children ages 4 and 5 not yet enrolled in kindergarten are invited to register for a free "Ready for Kindergarten" class that provides families with learning toys, ideas, and information.

Free childcare is provided during the class for children age 3 and up.

Spring classes are scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. on March 22 at Sunrise Elementary School and from 6 to 8 p.m. on March 15 and 29 at Maplewood Elementary School. Participants may choose one class to attend.

Spring classes will address how to prepare children socially and emotionally for kindergarten.
