Deer Park Elementary Event Helps Parents Prepare Children for School

Deer Park Elementary School will host a 'Born Learning' session at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, at the school.

'Born Learning' is a statewide initiative designed to provide support for parents and guardians of young children. 

The evening will include a free meal, childcare and information regarding kindergarten readiness skills and simple things parents and guardians can do to prepare their child for success in school. 

The program will feature an overview of the 'Born Learning' series, and is designed to introduce parents to the program. 

DPES assistant principal Kristin Atwell said, “The entire Deer Park family has been and is very excited about the opportunities Born Learning gives our community. Our kindergarten team works very hard to plan and prepare for each session to ensure our families with young children gain insight on what is needed to be ready for kindergarten. We also want our families to enjoy fellowship with one another and for the kids to have a great time each session as well!”

Program facilitators will explain the different teaching strategies that parents, guardians and caregivers can incorporate into their lifestyles. 

The evening will conclude with educational and fun activities involving children and their parents or guardians. 

The event is open to the entire community and is not limited to families living in the Deer Park attendance zone. 

Parents of older children are also welcome, but topics are designed to address the needs of children from birth to age 5. 

Deer Park Elementary School is located at 4959 New Hartford Road, in Owensboro.
