Countdown to Kindergarten is an free educational festival that supports rising kindergarteners’ transition into school. Main Street Children’s Museum will offer free limited admission. Over 30 community exhibitors will provide activities that encourage young learners to get off to a good start.

Countdown to Kindergarten connects families with local agencies to learn about available educational, health, and community resources. Colgate Bright Smiles Bright Futures will provide free pediatric dental screenings, River Hills Lake Wylie Lions Club will provide free vision screenings, and Beginnings SC will offer free hearing screenings. Parents can gather information about after-school programs and youngsters can climb aboard a school bus. Representatives from all four public school systems will be available to answer questions. Community exhibitors will offer activities and school supply giveaways. Sign-up for a library card, check-out some good books at the York County Book Mobile and visit the new Friends of the York County Library bookstore on Main Street.

Countdown to Kindergarten is a partnership between Culture & Heritage Museums, York County First Steps, and York County School Districts. Sponsorship for 2016 Countdown to Kindergarten is graciously provided by Publix Super Markets Charities, Absolute Total Care, and Comporium.
