Taking Action for Kindergarten Readiness

“We knew Brandon might struggle starting Kindergarten. We didn’t have the money for pre-school and we were really worried he’d already be behind. I don’t know what we would do without this help.”

6 year old Brandon’s family is like many others who are also unable to enroll their kids in high-quality preschool. Fortunately, they found they could enroll Brandon in a four-week K-Camp through United Way designed to prepare kids like Brandon with little or no preschool experience to thrive in their new roles as kindergartners.

Thanks to United Way donors—there is zero cost to families for their children to attend the Camp. Your support helps teachers and volunteers work with students on how to get along with others. They practice following directions and rules, and work on recognizing shapes, letters, counting, and writing their names.

After K-Camp, Brandon’s parents saw a huge improvement—especially his ability to sit quietly and listen to the teacher. Thanks to you, Brandon showed measurable improvement in his reading skills and is better prepared to succeed in school. Because of United Way donors, kids in our community can be kindergarten-ready—no matter their family resources.
