Little Learners Passport
The Little Learner Passport was developed by the BY5 Early Learning Environments Task Force as a way to help young children in Delaware County positively engage their community, while simultaneously helping them to develop the needed skills to be successful in Kindergarten.
The Passport is a small booklet that contains 100 simple, hands-on activities that children can do with their families—everything from preparing a meal, exploring textures, and even visiting local landmarks. The Passport activities, which can be completed any time before a child enters Kindergarten, are meant to prod children to ask questions, learn simple skills, and engage with the world around them.
As an incentive to complete the booklet, kids can receive small rewards after completing 30 items and again at 60 items. Scroll down to learn more about current prizes.
After all 100 items in the Passport are completed, kids complete one last item: register for Kindergarten at their local elementary school! Once a child registers for school, they can tear out the small certificate in the back of the Passport and contact BY5 to receive a grand prize.
