“There’s a place every parent wants for their child,” begins Fort Worth ISD’s new 30-second TV commercial. With the help of the District’s youngest students, the commercial then shows why that place is here – Fort Worth ISD Pre-K and Kindergarten.
The commercial, which begins airing next month in English and Spanish, urges parents to register their children for Pre-K beginning April 1, 2018. Fort Worth ISD is making it easier for parents to enroll children this year by providing streamlined online registration and requiring fewer documents during enrollment.
Here are some important dates:
In addition, the Fort Worth ISD Bookmobile will visit local neighborhoods to help parents register their children. Children will receive free books to get them excited about learning as they prepare to begin school in the fall.
The District’s Pre-K program is free of charge, and there’s enough room for every child. Children attend school from 8 a.m. – 2:15 p.m. each day in classrooms that are nurturing, safe spaces that inspire discovery and learning.
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 16 additional hours of training annually. This additional training equips teachers with the latest tools to give young students the right balance of structure and play in their education. Our teachers focus on literacy, math, social interactions and other skills to help children successfully navigate the academic path that lies ahead.
