United Way of Howard County launches Kindergarten Countdown and announces another summer of Kindergarten Readiness Camps. Both are grade levels programs for Kindergarteners starting school in the Fall of 2017.
Kindergarten Countdown is a partnership of area businesses, hospitals and government.
Activities begin June 5 at all Library locations with a free t-shirt, map of summer events (stops), and a passport. Summer events or stops invite incoming Kindergartners, parents, guardians to learn and enjoy new experiences around the community designed specifically for that grade level.
Thanks to these community partners for hosting summer stops: Bind Café, Edward Jones, City of Kokomo KPD, St. Vincent Kokomo, SOL House, Delphi E & S, Seiberling Mansion, Comics Cubed, YMCA, Kokomo Toys, Community Howard Regional Hospital, Elwood Haynes Museum, City of Kokomo Parks and Recreation.
Kindergarten Countdown Camps: Free summer camps for students with little or no preschool experience. This program prepares children for their new roles as Kindergarten students. Camps are June 5 – June 29 from 8am – 12noon with two locations: Taylor Primary School and Elwood Haynes Elementary.
