Getting Ready for Kindergarten Program
Children who are entering kindergarten in the fall, along with their parents, are invited to a program of stories and fun activities in this collaborative effort between the local libraries and the Smithfield Outreach program. The integrated preschool teachers will be on hand, as well as the Children’s Librarians from both libraries in town. Parents will receive a calendar explaining the early learning standards to use with their children to better prepare them for kindergarten. Refreshments will be served.
