Discovery Place Kids is helping young learners get ready for their first big day of school with Countdown to Kindergarten, a FREE community-wide program for rising kindergartners and their families.
This annual event focuses on kindergarten readiness and celebrates a child's entrance into formal education. Enjoy FREE Museum admission as community partners offer skill-building activities and information that children and parents will need in preparation for their first day of school:
- Meet with local kindergarten teachers and learn about what to expect in the first 30 days of school
- Visit a mock classroom
- Play literacy games
- Explore school bus safety with Gus the Bus
- Get to know local firefighters, police officers and EMTs
- Enjoy story time and craft activities
- Discover afterschool opportunities including sports, dance, music and scouting
- Get a free dental screening and learn how to maintain a healthy smile
- Test and try new skills throughout the Museum
Children who are ready to learn and are well-prepared for kindergarten have a greater opportunity for success. Discovery Place Kids-Huntersville is bringing the community together to play an active role in the preparedness process.
