Learning in Your Community
WITF, along with our neighborhood partners, support children and families learning in the community.
WITF recognizes that transitions can be tricky. To help support families and children in the transition from preschool to kindergarten, WITF has partnered with community agencies and sponsors to create Ready Set Go Kindergarten!
Join us to celebrate all our friends at Ready Set Go Kindergarten and Friends at the Cumberland Drive-In Theatre!
Each spring, the WITF Central PA Spelling Bee invites 4th to 8th grade students from 11 surrounding counties to demonstrate their spelling knowledge as they attempt to make their way to the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
Ready or not, about four million children enter kindergarten each year in the United States. Our children’s earliest experiences are important from the moment of their birth to the moment they walk into a Kindergarten classroom. How do we help our children get ready for this really, big step?
Here’s a good place to start.
WITF’s Back To School Bash is one day celebration of children’s transition from summer back to school. We know that transitions can be tricky and while some children look forward to heading back into the classroom, some young children can feel anxious and so can their families.
WITF Family Play and Learn is an innovative approach to engaging the community and bringing educational resources to spaces where children may have unstructured free time.
