Countdown to Kindergarten supports and promotes quality early childhood education in our community. The summer program for Lexington children allows those entering kindergarten and their families to experience fun and educational activities throughout the community. The program raises awareness of the importance of early childhood learning and of organizations that offer educational programming. Countdown to Kindergarten is designed to create enthusiasm as children enter the lifelong journey of learning.
Countdown to the first day of kindergarten as you explore all the fun Lexington has to offer this summer. Once your child is registered for Kindergarten, pick up your t-shirt at any Lexington Public Library branch and let the journey begin!
