Bookmobile Hits the Road to Kick Off Full-Day Pre-K and Kindergarten Campaign in Fort Worth ISD

(Wednesday, February 24, 2021) -- The Fort Worth ISD Bookmobile is on the road – to tell parents about full-day Pre-K and Kindergarten. 

Beginning the week of March 1, employees of the District’s Family Communications Department will kick off Pre-K and Kindergarten outreach. The bookmobile’s first stop will be at LVT Rise on Thursday, March 4 from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon; and Potter’s House Fort Worth on Saturday, March 6 from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

Families will receive free copies of “Countdown to Kindergarten,” a resource booklet that provides information about a child’s important milestones in social skills, emotional development, language acquisition, and motor skill development; books for toddlers and early readers; and resources from MHMR, Help Me Grow North Texas and Read Fort Worth.

“This is the first of many mobile pop-up efforts to be held between March and June to help promote early childhood learning. Our goal is to meet parents where they are and show them all Fort Worth ISD has to offer,” said Jennifer Perez, Director of Family Communications.

Pre-K and Kindergarten in the Fort Worth ISD provide safe spaces that inspire discovery, learning, and there’s enough room for every child. 

Pre-K and Kindergarten teachers in Fort Worth ISD have earned their state certification. Pre-K teachers receive an extra 30 hours of training each year and Kindergarten teachers receive an added 16 hours. This additional training equips teachers with the latest tools to give young students the right balance of structure and play in their education. 

Registration starts April 1. To learn more about our early childhood programs, visit www.fwisd.org/prek .
