Cruise into Kindergarten @ Lackawanna County Children's Library
Apr 4 @ 12:30 pm – 2:00 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 April 4th and continues through May 9th and will take place every Tuesday.

There are two sessions on each Tuesday:

12:30 PM – 2:00 PM

5:30 PM – 7:00 PM

Call the Children’s Library to register your child and pick a time session that works best for you! Space is limited to 12 children.
