Countdown to Kindergarten

Last time I counted we have almost forty preschoolers enrolled in our preschool program that will be going onto Kindergarten next school year! That’s over half our program. As we are closing in on our second half of the school year, I wanted to share a resource from the Paul Sawyier Public Library related to Kindergarten readiness. They will be hosting a six-week program for parents/guardians and children who will be entering kindergarten in the fall of 2015. Registration starts today and I can’t recommend this program enough. Teachers will be sending home information about the program in your child’s folder. See the details below for more information:

Date: 2/19/2015, 2/26/2015, 3/5/2015, 3/12/2015, 3/19/2015, 3/26/2015


Countdown to Kindergarten is a six-week program of activities specially designed to help parents and kids get ready and excited to attend Kindergarten this fall. Kids and parents will work on school readiness skills and important information will be presented on health and physical well-being, fostering reading skills at home, how to tell if a child is ready for kindergarten, and what to expect at school. Participants will receive a “Countdown Calendar” which includes special literacy tips and suggested activities for parents to do with their children as they prepare for school, as well as a certificate of completion. Children should be entering Kindergarten in Fall 2015 to attend this program.

Patrons should choose between two sessions: Thursdays @ 6:30 p.m. or Fridays @ 11 a.m. The first meeting of the Thursday session will be Thursday, February 19. Registration is required and begins Monday, February 2.
You may also register on the website or by calling the library at 352.2665, ext 205.



  1. I like the idea of a countdown to kindergarten program. There’s a fairly stark contrast between preschool and elementary school. A program such as this helps bridge the learning gap and better prepares children for the next level of education. preschool programs
