Each year, United Way of Champaign County distributes free Getting Ready for Kindergarten calendars through their Read. Talk. Play. Everyday! initiative. They are meant for families with kids ages three to five, and it’s filled with easy activities to do that prepare these little ones for kindergarten. The calendars can be downloaded from the website, or printed copies are available at the libraries and local childcare providers. There are English, French, and Spanish versions.
On September 7th, from 5:30 to 7 p.m., they will join the Community Coalition’s Walk as One event, to share kindergarten prep resources with various neighborhoods around Champaign-Urbana.
