This summer, children who have registered for kindergarten in 2019-20 have a chance to attend a variety of fun, free, and educational activities through the school district’s Countdown to Kindergarten program. Many community organizations partner to offer these countywide opportunities. To participate, simply register your child for kindergarten at your assigned elementary school. In your Countdown to Kindergarten booklet, you will find a coupon that you can take to any branch of the Lexington Public Library and pick up a Countdown to Kindergarten T-shirt for your child. The C2K T-shirt serves as your kindergartener’s ticket into all these events.

Countdown to Kindergarten is supported financially by PNC Foundation in conjunction with Fayette County Public Schools, United Way of the Bluegrass and Childcare Council of Kentucky. However, none of the efforts would be possible without the generosity of our community partners!
