Ready, Set, Go... Kindergarten

witf recognizes that transitions can be tricky for some children and families. To help support families and children in the transition from preschool to kindergarten, witf has partnered with community agencies and sponsors to create an annual event to provide families with useful information and gives the soon-to-be kindergartners with a day full of fun and memories. Our 2012 event, celebrating the class of 2025, drew over 500 guests to the witf Public Media Center, including 175 children. For more information call 717-910-2806.
