KET holds free training for Jefferson County early childcare providers

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- KET officials say 50 percent of preschoolers in Jefferson County are not prepared for Kindergarten.

That's why the organization's education staff offered free training to 75 local early childcare providers Saturday.

Organizers say how a child performs in Kindergarten is a strong indicator of whether the child will succeed in future schooling.

"The ideas that we provide them are cheap ... that they would do with their kids here in the training."

Clifford the Big Red Dog even made an appearance at the training session, which was funded by the Everyday Learning grant.
