The Northfield Public Schools school readiness program Bridges to Kindergarten still has openings at Sibley and Bridgewater elementary schools for August 2013.

Bridges to Kindergarten is a free, three-week program designed to assist children in making a smooth transition into kindergarten. Children accepted into the program participate in a kindergarten-like classroom experience with licensed early childhood and kindergarten teachers. All interested families are encouraged to apply.

Classes will be held from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Aug. 5 to 22, Monday through Thursday. Participating children are placed in classrooms in the building where they will attend kindergarten.

Visit Bridges to Kindergarten online to apply, or call Sara Line at 507.645.1232 for more information.
