The KinderCamp program is a targeted intervention for school-readiness designed to help children and families prepare for the transition into the educational system. KinderCamp accomplishes this goal by:
• Building social and emotional skills that support learning such as following directions, taking turns, relating with others, and learning in a classroom with other children;
• Increase pre-literacy and math skills
•Creating an environment that fosters independent-thinking by allowing each child to experience learning by manipulating, investigating, asking questions, and taking risks; and
• Making families more comfortable with a formal school setting by familiarizing them with resources, teachers, staff, and routines.
These funds will be dispersed for the KinderCamp program held in JUNE 2020. This will be the third year the District has granted Williams KinderCamp program.
