Discovery Place Kids, 105 Gilead Road in Huntersville, is holding the 6th annual Countdown to Kindergarten on Friday, August 16th, 2019, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Rising kindergarteners and their families are invited to this free event, which includes museum admission.
Siblings are welcome, as are families from any area, not just Huntersville or Mecklenburg County.
This annual event focuses on kindergarten readiness and celebrates a child’s entrance into formal education.
Enjoy FREE Museum admission as community partners inside and outside the museum offer skill-building activities and information that children and parents will need in preparation for their first day of school, including:
- Mock classrom
- Scissor Safety
- Mock cafeteria
- Practice name writing
- Shoelace tying
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.
Kindergartener teachers from Charlotte Mecklenburg School will also be outside on the event lawn to greet families. Teachers will introduce themselves to your Kindergartener and will hopefully become a familiar face on the first day of school for students attending schools in the North Learning District.
