Have you heard of Preschool Pioneer Library?

Preschool Pioneer Library is a FREE Internet resource designed to help children 3 to 6 years old get ready for school. It's packed with games, activities, and other materials to make learning fun and rewarding. There is a lot of great information for grown-ups, too!

You can find it online at

The UEN (Utah Education Network) is looking for volunteers to help with a study to evaluate Preschool Pioneer. Families participating will attend two 20-minute meetings in Salt Lake City to assess the kindergarten readiness of their 4-year olds before and after using Preschool Pioneer. If you have a 4-year old (as of September 1, 2008) and want to help with this study, please sign up at your Salt Lake County Library before February 1. A UEN staff member will contact you to set up an appointment.

Even if you don't want to participate in the study, the website is available at no charge.
