The WITSummer Early Childhood program is a kindergarten readiness program that takes place for 2.5 hours, Monday-Thursday, from July 10-August 10.

The program, led by a CPS teacher and a WITS staff member, aims to prepare incoming kindergarteners for school by teaching letter names and letter sounds, developmental writing skills, and reading behaviors. Each week, the staff uses a different fairy tale as a fun way to practice these skills and engage with stories.

Volunteers are asked to make a minimum commitment of one day per week.
