Parent guide to Kindergarten

See also

Silicon Valley Community Foundation is in the process of updating its Parent Guide to Kindergarten in order to bring it up-to-date to reflect the current early learning landscape, which now includes Transitional Kindergarten and Common Core State Standards.

We will be holding two parent focus groups to provide us input on the revision to the guide. Ideally, participating parents will have children that are preschool age or recently made the transition to Kindergarten. We need your help in recruiting parents!

We will have a parent focus group both in San Mateo County and Santa Clara County. We need around 10-12 parents for each focus group.

They will be held on:

Santa Clara County
Date: April 7, 2014
Time: 9:00AM-10:30AM
Location: Silicon Valley Community Foundation (2440 West El Camino Real Suite 300 Mt View, CA 94040)

San Mateo County
April 8, 2014
Time: 9:00AM-10:30AM
Location: San Mateo Conference Center (1300 South El Camino Real Suite 100 San Mateo, CA)

We will provide all focus group participants a $50 gift card.
