Kindergarten Countdown is an annual program designed to help you and your family prepare your child for Kindergarten. This year take home kits are available to supplement the resources provided on our website. Join library staff to unpack the fun and open-ended activities contained in each kit. The activities are designed to promote the early literacy skills of talking, reading, singing, writing, playing, fine motor skills, and self-help. Library staff will demonstrate the materials and provide helpful early learning tips along the way.
Sign up to reserve a kit here.
Register with your email to attend live and the Zoom information will be sent to you on the day of the event. The event will be closed captioned. There are two other Zoom sessions being offered on May 22 in Español and May 25 in English.
To take full advantage of Kindergarten Countdown, we encourage you to visit our Kindergarten Countdown webpage at ccclib.org/kindergarten-countdown. Learn more about each early literacy skill by watching the videos, exploring the booklists, and sharing some of the suggested activities with your child. Work at your own pace, and remember, you do not have to take lots of time to implement the program ideas. It is best to incorporate these skills into things you are already doing with your child.
