Together to Kindergarten is a kindergarten readiness program for Spanish, Haitian-Creole and French speaking African families where English is a new language.  Since 2006, this English language immersion program provides children, with limited pre-school experience, with the academic and social skills to help them succeed in kindergarten.

Together to Kindergarten supports parents by providing workshops to assist them in acclimating to the culture of the United States public education system and skills to be active participants in their children’s’ education. This program is provided free of charge including door-to-door transportation for participants from Uniondale and Westbury.  The Museum strives to create long-term relationships with the families by providing free family memberships and special events throughout the year for continued support.


Children learn skills to prepare them for kindergarten.


Workshops provide valuable skills for parents and caregivers.


Children engage in museum exhibits as part of their daily schedule.

The Museum has created resources to assist parents and organizations looking to support dual language learners as they prepare for a formal school experience.  Check out our multi-lingual resources.
