GTNP to host free 'Rolling Into Readiness' kids program tomorrow

(Jackson, Wyo.) - Have fun, play and learn with your child Saturday, April 23 when the Rolling Into Readiness bus brings early literacy activities for kids ages 10 and under to Grand Teton National Park at the Craig Thomas Discovery & Visitor Center. Rolling Into Readiness collaborators, Grand Teton National Park, Children’s Learning Center and Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance, will host games, presentations and tours of park ambulances and fire trucks. The park invites kids to earn a Junior Ranger badge by completing fun activities. Rolling Into Readiness collaborators will also provide a passport ticket for our youngest Junior Rangers to support getting children ready for kindergarten. “The project’s goal is to expose families to a variety of opportunities and practices that will help children make a successful transition to Kindergarten, and to do so through play, which is the language of learning for children,” said Isabel Zumel from Teton County Library. The Rolling Into Readiness bus is a collaborative project between the Children’s Learning Center, El Puente, Jackson Hole Children’s Museum, Teton County Library, Teton Literacy Center and Teton Science Schools to bring kindergarten readiness activities and materials directly to families. The event is happening at the Craig Thomas Discovery & Visitor Center on Teton Park Road from 10 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. tomorrow. It is free to attend and kids ages 0 - 10 are welcome. Families welcome and encouraged to attend. This is not a drop-off activity. *Feature Photo: Rolling Into Readiness bus. h/t Teton County Library /
