The Path to Kindergarten Starts Here

The Path to Kindergarten Starts Here

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.

Back to School Bash

Back to School Bash

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.

Family Play and Learn

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.
