Local organizations will partner to host an evening event Jan. 30 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Hudson Library and Historical Society, 96 Library Street in Hudson, for parents focusing on how best to prepare preschoolers for a successful transition to kindergarten and beyond. 

Featured speaker Sarah Jackson, early learning consultant from Summit ESC, will share techniques that can help get your children off to a healthy start, build relationships with them throughout their lives, equip them with the necessary structure for healthy brain development and assist them in increasing their academic achievement. 

Instructional strategies that parents can use to address the visual, auditory, tactile and kinesthetic modalities of their children will also be addressed. The event will end with a question and answer session with Hudson City Schools and Seton administrators and elementary teachers.
