Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Little Ranger Roadster?
The Little ranger Roadster is a mobile learning environment focused on traveling through our community to provide children with a fun and educational experience. There will be time for finger plays, stories and art for your child while they learn new and exciting skills.
Why was the Little Ranger Roadster created?
While completing our Community Needs Assessment during the '17-'18 school year, it was determined that the two obstacles preventing families from attending ECFE were transportation and cost. With this in mind, we created a mobile classroom that would provide a free ECFE experience to children and families in the community that may not be able to attend a regular ECFE class.
How is the Little Ranger Roadster funded?
The funding for this project came from our School Readiness state aid to help children in the community become ready for kindergarten through Early Childhood Education. The Early Childhood Programs do not receive K-12 district funds or funds from any levy referendum.
What age is the material appropriate for?
Materials are designed for children up to five-years-old. Different materials are brought onboard for age-specific classes.
Does my child ride in the Little Ranger Roadster?
Children will not be transported in the Roadster, it will remain parked for the duration of the class.
Can I leave while my child attends a class on the Little Ranger Roadster?
Children must be accompanied by an adult. This is a time for adults to enjoy facilitated play with their young ones. A teacher and an assistant will be there to provide learning opportunities.
What is the cost of a class and do I need to register?
Drop-in classes are free and do not require registration. The Roadster is meant to reach out to the community and prepare your child for a lifetime of learning fun!
