DANVILLE - Danville Public Schools is hosting a free School Readiness Camp for children who will begin Kindergarten in September and who have little or no pre-school experience. The camp will help prepare children for their first school experience.
Camp begins June 17, 2013, and ends July 18, 2013. Camp hours are Monday - Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Free transportation and lunch will be provided.
"Children entering Kindergarten without any prior pre-school experience often struggle to keep up. The School Readiness Camp is an opportunity for those children to practice social interactions, school routines, and pre-literacy activities, which will help them on the first day of school and beyond," said Sandra Andrews, principal of Grove Park Pre-School.
The deadline to apply is Wednesday, June 5. For more information, contact Grove Park Pre-School at (434) 799-6437 or visit www.SmartBeginningsDP.org.
