Countdown To Kindergarten

Some children, and their parents, come to Kindergarten without any idea of what is expected. WLJT is tackling that problem with a step-by-step Kindergarten “how to.”

Educators and other experts join us to explain what children and parents should know and what they should expect when it’s time for Kindergarten. Immunizations, school supplies, appropriate dress, conduct, and even a school bus tour and safety lesson make up just a portion of the program’s curriculum.

If you would like to schedule a Countdown To Kindergarten in your community, contact WLJT's Sue Lasky at 731-881-7561 or slasky@wljt.org
