Schools run Ready, Set, Learn preschool program

Schools, Houston Link to Learning, and Strongstart ran two government funded Ready, Set, Learn pre-school programs in Houston last week.

Three and four year olds Dylan, Bryce, Coen, Jacob and Marcus paint and experimenting with colours outside Twain Sullivan last Friday.

Mica, Carson, Erica, Darasimi do some throwing and aiming at the end of their obstacle course just outside Twain Sullivan School.

Schools, Houston Link to Learning, and Strongstart ran two government funded Ready, Set, Learn pre-school programs in Houston, one at HCS and one at Twain Sullivan (in partnership with Silverthorne). The events are to help children get familiar with schools and get to know some of the educators and staff. HCS had 15 children fill their classroom for the program, and Twain Sullivan had just over 30 children participate.

 

Brienna and her Dad Wilson  experiment with links at the Houston Christian School last Wednesday.

Sydney, Emile, and Ryan have some fun in the sensory bin at HCS last Wednesday.
