The goal of the Countdown to Kindergarten event is to get children excited for their first day of kindergarten and to ease any pre-kindergarten fears. Each new Kindergarten student received a FREE backpack from Cradles to Crayons filled with school supplies. Families were also able to enjoy the Museum exhibits, explore a real school bus, and dance with a DJ.

Parents and guardians were connected to relevant programs and resources for their little ones at the event. Boston Saves, the City of Boston's children's savings account program, informed parents that each K2 student will have a $50 college savings account from the City to start them on a pathway to academic success. Further information will be sent to families in November.
Countdown to Kindergarten is an initiative between BPS, City of Boston, and many community organizations that work together in providing a positive and supportive transition into BPS kindergarten (K0, K1 or K2) for students and their families. The initiative offers free parent-child playgroups, provides readiness tips and opportunities, as well as hosting workshops and other transition activities. For more information about Countdown to Kindergarten visit countdowntokindergarten.org or visit their Facebook page.
