  • Each child's approach to learning is unique

    The Governor’s Office of Early Childhood encourages all parents to think about school readiness as their child develops. School readiness includes a variety of skills children display before kindergarten, which will give them a great start in school.

  • LaRue County Reads invites community to help young readers

    For the past 10 years, LaRue County Reads has been providing preschoolers through fifth-graders valuable reading support and has proven a rewarding volunteer opportunity for the community.

    The program links students with trained volunteers who typically spend 30 minutes each week reading to or reading with a child.

    The goal of the program is to have every student reading at grade level within four years, said Connie Goff, LaRue County Reads training supervisor and director of adult and community education for LaRue County Schools.
