Join us on National Kindergarten Day as we join with a variety of partners from around Baltimore to prepare young children for their first school or pre-school experience! Countdown to Kindergarten is an annual community-wide event that encourages school readiness skills in children about to enter kindergarten while providing parents with information and resources, including health care screenings and free books. Special performances and partners join us for this incredible day, designed to support efforts to ensure children are ready for Kindergarten by the age of five! Presented by Maryland 529. NOTE: Port Discovery distributes approximately 10,000 free admission tickets to this event so that children and families preparing to enter Kindergarten can enjoy this educational event. Please contact Port Discovery if you are interested in becoming an official partner for future events.
