Kindergarten Countdown Day

July 7, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Kindergarten Countdown is a partnership between Metro United Way, Louisville Metro, LFPL, JCPS, and PNC Bank with support from cultural and educational institutions throughout the county. This partnership is called the Ready for K Alliance. The goal of this alliance is to give children and families of the Louisville area the tools and resources they need to improve kindergarten-readiness skills needed to succeed. Kindergarten Countdown is a yearlong series of events offered to children entering kindergarten.

Kindergarten Countdown Day at the Louisville Zoo will feature stations set up around the Zoo. These stations will give incoming kindergarten students the opportunity to get hands-on experiences with animals at the Zoo while working on their kindergarten-readiness skills.

Here’s How to Participate:

  1. Visit any Louisville Free Public Library Branch and get a FREE Kindergarten Countdown t-shirt  for your child. *Child must be present. T-shirts are NOT available at the Zoo.
  2. Your child wears the T-shirt with pride to Kindergarten Countdown events.
  3. Your child wears the shirt on July 7, 2017 to the Louisville Zoo and receives FREE ADMISSION (plus one free adult admission) and FREE parking.

Free admission does not include rides, attractions or food.
