K-Ready Parent Cafe – I AM My Ancestors’ Wildest Dreams!

November 30, 2020 @ 6:00 pm-8:00 pm

Ready Kids East County presents a series of cafes that celebrate Black children in Pittsburg and explore their road to kindergarten.

Get together (virtually!) with other parents and caregivers of Black children to talk about what it takes to get your babies ready for kindergarten.

Whether you’ve been thinking about kindergarten since day 1 or you have no idea where to begin, if you’re a parent or caregiver of an African American child, these cafes are for you. All caregivers are welcome—moms, dads, grandparents, foster parents—if you love on a little one, please join us!

We’ll be talking all about what it means for us to dream big as a Pittsburg parent or caregiver of a Black child.

This is the second of 5 cafes, and each will cover a different subject.

Dinner and childcare is on us!

Each participant will receive a childcare stipend and meal vouchers.


Save the date for future parent cafes!

All cafes will be held virtually via Zoom (we’ll email you a link!)
