The Countdown to Kindergarten was held last week at Colleton County First Steps with a carnival including games, activities and pizza. The children were also given four hardcover books and school supplies. Countdown to Kindergarten is a program to help children get ready for kindergarten. Children are visited by their kindergarten teacher five times during the summer. They are provided books and other materials, along with a lesson plan, to help them and their parents prepare for their first days of school. This year the program served 67 children. “We could not have done this without the assistance from the Colleton County School District, Title One office that provided funding for 42 children,” said First Steps Director Cindy Dickerson. Palmetto Rural Telephone and Wal-mart assisted in funding activities, food and school supplies.
