Camp Kindergarten is offered free with generous support from Together Topeka, Security Benefit, the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library and local school districts. Starting school is a milestone in the life of every child, yet in Shawnee County, more than 1,300 children have not had the opportunity for a formal preschool experience. As part of a community-wide goal of having every child ready for school by the age of five, the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center is inviting incoming kindergarteners alongside parents, caregivers and community organizations that support children and their families as they prepare to launch into school at Discovery Kindergarten.
