It has been an exciting start to the 2017-2018 school year for the school district’s youngest learners. The St. Johns County School District continues to make early education a priority for our community by providing free full day pre-k programs at Crookshank and Osceola elementary schools and The Webster School. These three schools have 18 pre-k classrooms with over 300 total students.
On August 28, Early Childhood Services kicked off the Monday Funday program with “Once Upon a Mat,” a children’s yoga session. The Monday Funday program is not only for preschoolers but for parents as well. This year the Early Childhood Services staff will be offering an eight-week parent curriculum that will be held once a month during Monday Funday. This curriculum will provide parenting tips and tools in addition to providing an opportunity to collaborate with other parents and the Early Childhood staff.
Monday Fundays are held 5:30-6:30 p.m. at the Yates Building located at 47 Orange Street in St. Augustine. Each Monday that school is in session, the Early Childhood Services team will provide fun and engaging activities for families. Activities will rotate each week:
|1st Monday of the month:||Bigger than Books – Literacy Activity|
|2nd Monday of the month:||Cookin’ Kids – Health/Nutrition/Cooking|
|3rd Monday of the month:||Science is Fun|
|4th Monday of the month:||Kids Yoga and Parent Meeting|
