Blogger's Note: The following was provided by Mary Rieck, coordinator for Pottstown Early Action for Kindergarten Readiness, or PEAK.
Seven, state-funded Summer Kindergarten Readiness Program classes will be offered through Pre-K Counts in August, free to low-income families.
The classes will be two weeks in length (Aug. 11- 22) and focus on skills to help your child be successful in kindergarten.
To be eligible for the classes, the child must be entering Pottstown School District kindergarten in September and be income eligible. (Family income cannot exceed 300% of the federal poverty level - for a family of four that is an annual income of approximately $71,550).
The classes will be held at Montgomery Early Learning Centers, Pottstown YMCA, KinderCare Learning Center, Warwick Child Care Center in North Coventry, YWCA Tri-County Area and Pottstown School District Pre-K Counts.
A complete listing of the sites and contact information can be found on the PEAK web site at www.peakonline.org or in the illustration above.
Contact the sites to register.
