Cruise into Kindergarten @ Lackawanna County Children's Library
Jul 26 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Cruise into kindergarten with this 6 week pre-kindergarten experience for children who will be attending kindergarten in the Fall of 2017, but have not attended a preschool. 

The Children’s Library has received materials from The Office of Commonwealth Libraries to start a series of Play K programs, Cruise into Kindergarten, for children and their caregivers through the Cruise into Kindergarten program grant. The Play K  curriculum allows children entering Kindergarten in the fall to “play Kindergarten” using materials from different “playscapes”.

Children will practice activities centered around a theme that are aligned with the PA Learning Standards and Kindergarten readiness skills such as using scissors, going over a calendar, imaginative play activities, and taking turns.

The program begins July 12th and continues through August 16.

10:30 AM – 12:00 PM

Call the Children’s Library to register your child.  Space is limited to 12 children.
