Kindergarten Readiness

  • Starting kindergarten is a milestone children and their families look forward to with excitement. As part of the transition to kindergarten, we know children and families have many questions too. Getting "ready" for kindergarten can mean many things for a rising kindergartener - from getting a new book bag and fun school supplies to learning new skills such as recognizing or even writing some of the letters in their name! Project Enlightenment offers many resources for families and young children that are getting ready to make the exciting transition to kindergarten.
