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.
Please note: Due to construction at de Diego this summer, the program will take place at Clemente Community Academy, located at 1147 N. Western Ave.
