The DeForest Area School District will hold an Early Learning Fair for all families within the DeForest Area School District with 4-year-old children (on or before September 1, 2012). The event will take place on Thursday, March 8, from 12 noon to 7:00 pm at the Holum Education Center, 520 E. Holum Street, DeForest.
Parents can get information about the community-based four-year-old kindergarten program, called “Get Together 4 Kids (GT4K)”. Local community preschool/childcare partners (host sites) will be available on March 8 to provide information and answer questions.
In addition, free vision, dental and hearing screening will be offered, along with private consultations for parents to discuss early learning issues with educational professionals. Several community members will also be on hand to provide information about resources for parents. Each child will receive a free t-shirt and book, thanks to generous donations from community sponsors.
For more information or answers to questions about 4K or the Early Learning Fair, call Peg Reis at 842-6579 or Judi Ramsett at 842-6556.
