This annual event focuses on kindergarten readiness and celebrates a child’s entrance into formal education.

Meet with local kindergarten teachers
Visit a mock classroom
Discover healthy, yummy lunch and snack options
Board a real school bus and learn about bus safety
Practice scissor safety
Enjoy hands-on science demonstrations and a special Story Time
