Counting Down to Kindergarten

Welcome to Counting Down to Kindergarten!

Spring Session runs Feb 3 – May 20 every Monday and Wednesday from 9:30am-11am (except Feb 17)

Welcome to our Counting Down to Kindergarten program. This Schuylerville Public Library program is dedicated to helping our young children reach all their academic potential by offering a free preschool atmosphere here at the library. This class meets twice a week and requires registration. The class was first taught by Jenny Edwards, a preschool teacher and mother who also authored this blog. The program has since been handed over to the talented Miss Susan, former kindergarten teacher.

This program features the academic and social skills your child will need prior to entering Kindergarten. Each week’s activities are based upon a theme. The program has a set routine: First, there is a circle time where stories are read, songs are sung, and other fun activities ensue, ending with instructions for the whole group. Then, the children and their parents break up and explore the various stations. The stations also follow the theme, and each station focuses on developing various preschool level skills. Some of these skills are: early literacy, name recognition, letter recognition, counting, number recognition, name, letter, and number writing, playing cooperatively, taking turns, exploring through the senses, fine motor skills, and art exploration.

This program is designed for children ages 3 to 5. If your child will turn 3 prior to September of the school year please join. Siblings are also welcome to attend. You can register in person at the library. When you register, you will hear from us through email you as we get closer to a new session beginning.
