About

The WITSKindergarten program develops trusting and influential relationships between adults and students, with the intention of developing the mind-set for learning at an important developmental age. Kindergarten students spend time reading with a consistent volunteer each week to build book and print awareness, as well as early literacy skills over the course of the year.
