The Fredricksen Library has received materials from The Office of Commonwealth Libraries to start a series of Play K programs for children and their adults through the Cruise into Kindergarten program grant.  The Play K curriculum allows children entering Kindergarten in the fall of 2017 to "play Kindergarten" using materials from different "playscapes". Children will practice activities centered around a theme that are aligned with the PA Learning Standards and Kindergarten readiness skills such as using scissors, going over a calendar and taking turns. Registration is required and limited to 10 children. Registration begins August 23.

Sponsored by The Office of Commonwealth Libraries as part of Cruise into Kindergarten, M&T Bank, Centric Bank and Davis Vision Inc.
