PRE-COVID Ready, Set, Learn Information: 

Ready, Set, Learn (RSL) is a school readiness initiative sponsored by the Ministry of Education in collaboration with the Ministry of Children and Family Development and the Ministry of Health. This initiative provides opportunities for elementary schools to influence school readiness in children through school based community events. It is also intended to facilitate partnerships between schools and local community agencies and early childhood service providers, and is designed to encourage positive connections between families and the school system as well as the participating community agencies.

In Powell River each elementary school in School District #47 sponsors a RSL open-house designed for 3-5 year olds. Each participating family receives a free kit containing an age appropriate book for the child, booklets/papers containing information for supporting preschool learning and development and information about community services. Ready, Set, Learn events in Powell River take place in the spring.

Please take some time to download the parent booklet "Ready, Set, Learn: Helping your preschooler get ready for school" that offers parents helpfil tips and easy and fun learning activities for three year olds.

More information on the Ready, Set, Learn program, including translations of the parent booklet, can be found on the Ministry's website.
