The class of 2027 starts kindergarten this year and the Koch Family Children’s Museum of Evansville (cMoe) wants to help make the transition as smooth as possible. New kindergarteners and their grown-ups are invited to celebrate all things kindergarten at Kindergarten…Here I Come on August 2nd from 10am-2pm.

Attendees can expect tips from multiple community agencies, exploration time in a real Kindergarten classroom, new social skills education and a school supplies raffle.

Kindergarten…Here I Come is a part of the museum’s Countdown to Kindergarten initiative designed to promote school readiness and early childhood education. Emily Endress, Director of Education, states, “While the activities are geared toward children who will be entering kindergarten in the fall, it is also a chance to reinforce the importance of early childhood learning in general. Our goal is to get kids excited about learning and to give parents some tools and skills they can use at home to encourage school readiness. We all know that community support is essential to developing lifelong learners, and we’d like to invite you to join us in presenting this day of learning and play! We anticipate 300+ children and their families will attend this event.”

This event is made possible with support from the Marilyn J. Klenck Fund for Education and Literacy, Culver Family Learning Center, and 4C of Southwestern Indiana.
