New Cumberland 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 curriculum allows children entering kindergarten at Hillside Elementary* in the fall of 2017 to participate in kindergarten readiness activities, hear stories, have parachute fun, and work with colors, numbers, letters, sorting, rhyming and science. Children may meet future classmates and make early friendships! 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 space is limited. This 90 minute program will be held the third Wednesday of the month at 10:15 from September 2016 to May 2017, with the first session taking place on September 21st. Registration begins on August 29.
