READY! for Kindergarten in Sandpoint is an early childhood education program that provides free parent workshops and take-home materials and toys. Our mission is to help parents, grandparents and caregivers learn the important pre-literacy, pre-math and social emotional skills their child will need to be successful, happy learners who are prepared for school.

The Panhandle Alliance for Education thanks:

The dedicated and caring adult community members and the Sandpoint Middle School and High School student volunteers who assist with our READY! program.
