Together to Kindergarten is a kindergarten readiness program for families whose adults were educated elsewhere. It is open to all families, regardless of their background. While the classes and parent workshops are primarily taught in English, our staff can also speak Spanish, Haitian-Creole or French to make sure all families can attend. 

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.
