“The topics that were discussed were very helpful and educative for the forum attendees. Many new parents and new immigrants attended the program and the information about health and nutrition, medical and dental, Canadian school system, etc. were very much helpful for them. ”

“My son LOVES school. I was in disbelief on the first day, when he gave me a hug and ran in without looking back. So full of confidence. (Of course, I left in tears). The most important thing my family learned from Ready for School Connects was that my son and I learned that it is okay to spend time apart.”

“I cannot thank RfSC enough for this program. I do not know how we would have managed starting school without it. I would highly recommend it to anyone, and it was an amazing experience. Thank you RfSC!”

“I told her new teacher that she does not know much English. The new teacher was surprised how talkative and good her English is. I believe her improvement was because of RfSC. I am very thankful for this program.
