Program Prepares Keiki For Kindergarten

Three weeks of summer preparation may be all that’s needed for a young child to make a smooth transition to kindergarten. And it’s all free.

Sponsored by INPEACE (Institute for Native Pacific Education and Culture), the Keiki Steps course helps children become familiar with the school setting and group-learning environment before public schools open July 30.

The program is set up at two West Oahu elementary school campuses – Nanaikapono (June 18-July 6, 8-11 a.m., 668-5800) and Kamaile (July 2-16, 8 a.m.-12:30 p.m., 697-7110).

All children must be registered for kindergarten at one of these schools in order to attend Keiki Steps. For more information, call 693-7222.
