Discovery Kindergarten



Discovery Kindergarten is a free, fun resource for all incoming kindergarten students, attending any school, provided by the Kansas Children's Discovery Center.



Camp Kindergarten helps get kids ready for school! Children and their caregivers come to the Discovery Center when the facility is normally closed for a special educational playtime and chance to explore a simulated classroom with teachers. Sessions are typically held in June with dates announced and registration opening in the spring. Virtual versions of Camp Kindergarten were recorded in 2020 and are available online.


The Discovery Kindergarten Fair is a community-wide celebration of all things kindergarten! The Discovery Center opens with free admission and dozens of community partners on-hand to offer activities, learning resources, health screenings, and more! A real school bus helps kids prepare for bus-riding, and the full museum is open for play. The fair is typically held at the end of July with the date announced and registration opening in the spring.



The Discovery Center thanks the following community partners for their support of Discovery Kindergarten. Students from all area districts are welcome.
