Smarty Alert: Our Smarty friends at Discovery Place KIDS are hosting a MUST-ATTEND event this Friday for rising kindergartners and their families to celebrate the very first “Big Day”! This FREE community-wide program 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.
-Visit a mock classroom.
-Discover healthy, yummy lunches and snacks.
-Board a real school bus and learn about bus safety with Gus the Bus (who doesn’t love Gus the Bus?!).
-Practice scissor safety.
-Enjoy a fashion show of school uniform styles
-Explore, test and try new skills throughout the Museum.
In addition, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools will be hosting workshops in English and in Spanish for parents on what to expect from kindergarten.
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.
Here’s the Smarty Scoop:
Date: Friday, August 14
