Parents and Caregivers:
Did you know that 90% of a child's brain develops between birth and age 5? Now is the time to focus on our children's early literacy skills! Because we at Westmont Hilltop are so dedicated to building our community and partnering with our families, we want to equip and inspire parents and caregivers to create homes and environments rich with LANGUAGE and LEARNING!
We have invested in a tool to help busy parents and caregivers to meet their child's early learning needs. READY ROSIE was created by a mom who had a background in education, but was still unsure exactly "how" to meet her daughter's needs. This tool is an innovative way to reach out to families to actually "show" you how to meet your child's early learning needs. In a recent study, 90% of parents are connected to their phone or computer at least 1 time/day. Take a moment to sign up so that you can receive daily dings from READY ROSIE through your email. The daily dings will be a 1 to 2 minute video clip that model a parent/child learning opportunity. It also gives you access to book suggestions and extensions to go along with the activity.
Based on your child's age, you will receive a "daily ding" several days per week (2 dings per week for Ready Baby birth to age 3) and (5 dings per week for Ready Rosie ages 3-5). Also, coming out in the fall will be "Bringing Up Rosie" for grades K-3.
The videos are quick and easy and can be fit into many of our daily routines. Please register today to begin receiving this exciting new resource! Our children are the foundation of our community! Please join us in building a strong foundation for our future!
Please enter your zipcode (15905) and the link will say that Ready Rosie is available for IU08. Click and enter your information....your "daily dings" should begin to arrive the day after you subscribe and will continue for 1 year (unless you chose to unsubscribe).
Thank you...we look forward to getting your child ready for school and ready for the world with READY ROSIE!
