Play Partners Volunteer

Play Partners is a volunteer program through ReadyKids that teaches preschool-age kids literacy skills, active listening, and focus through play and story telling together.

As a volunteer, you read stories and use interactive and fun activities, songs and finger-plays to engage preschool children in the classroom and home childcare setting. This helps children develop age-appropriate vocabulary, cognitive skills and get ready for school.

Play Partners volunteers are paired up in teams to visit the same child care provider and the children enrolled in their care, providing early literacy sessions, for one hour a week throughout the program year. Sessions run from October - May. Generally, most sessions are scheduled Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday mornings.
