Countdown to Kindergarten
This program spotlights the importance of early learning activities and family involvement in education while also providing Lexington residents with a range of entertaining activities. Thanks to the joint efforts of local organizations, children registered to start kindergarten in August have a summer full of free events to help them get ready for their first day of school.
COVID-19 impact: Countdown to Kindergarten goes virtual in 2020!
