Scappoose apartments to host early learning events by NWRESD

“Every Child Ready to Read,” a free workshop series for parents with preschool children whose first language is Spanish, is being offered on three Fridays this month, from Aug. 8 to Aug. 22, in the community room at the Sycamore View Apartments in Scappoose.

The workshops are from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will cover early literacy skills, brain developments and activities to support early childhood development. They are being offered by the Northwest Regional Education Service District.

Free childcare will be provided for children from ages 2 to 6, although children are encouraged to participate in many of the workshop activities.

Participating families are eligible to receive a free book and gasoline vouchers at each session. Snacks will also be provided.

The apartment community room is located at 33445 S.W. Sycamore Street, Scappoose.
