Penn State Extension hosts school webinar

For parents questioning if their child is ready for kindergarten, Penn State Extension is hosting a webinars that can help them to make that decision.

“One of the consequences of COVID-19 has been the closure of schools, including most early education programs,” said Denise Continenza, an educator with Penn State Extension’s food, families, and health program team, who will conduct the sessions with educator Darlene Sansone. “And that can leave parents wondering if their child is missing out on important learning opportunities that would prepare him or her for the first year of school.”

The webinar will take place from 6:30-7:30 p.m. May 27 and is called “Should I Redshirt My Child for Kindergarten?” The program will feature the advantages and disadvantages of waiting another year to send a child to school, also known as “redshirting.”

This webinar is being offered at no charge, but registration is required. To register, visit https://extension.psu.edu/should-i-redshirt-my-child-for-kindergarten.
