Laguna Beach EDI Community Task Force presents Passport to Learning event for families

On Saturday, May 11 from 9 to 11 a.m.,  the Laguna Beach Early Development Index (EDI) Community Task Force invites the community to participate in a “Passport to Learning” event at the Laguna Presbyterian Preschool. 

The event is designed to help families with young children build fine and gross motor skills and effective communication strategies for school success.

“The Passport to Learning event is an incredible opportunity to learn alongside your child, further strengthening their foundation for learning,” said Laguna Presbyterian Preschool Director Anne Herzog. She continued, “Tips, tricks, tools, and encouragement for all will abound on this journey through early childhood. The event is interactive, informative, and fun for all ages!”

Laguna Beach EDI Community Task Force event will be held at Laguna Presbyterian Church on May 11

Throughout the event, families will be invited to travel between engaging learning stations to receive free resources and professional guidance via a licensed and/or credentialed specialist designed to support and encourage school readiness. Lakeshore Learning will be in attendance to offer free door prizes and early learning resources for young families.

“Creating opportunities for our local specialists and parents to come together to model and share research-based activities that are proven to be effective to improve school readiness is very rewarding,” said LBUSD Director of Special Education Irene White. She continued, “Last year’s event was so successful, we decided to offer it again. We hope that our community takes advantage of this amazing opportunity.” 

The Laguna Beach EDI Community Task Force sponsors this event. The EDI Task Force is dedicated to promoting academic, social-emotional, and physical readiness for young children.
