Designed to properly prepare children with the tools and skills they need to succeed when they begin kindergarten, the Success By 6 pre-K Summer Program is administered in each of the nine school districts in Oswego County.

The program features a well-rounded curriculum, which includes special guest readers, a sun safety program presented by Cornell Cooperative Extension and basic social skills such as how to sit and pay attention and how to properly conduct yourself in a school environment.

“We are very grateful for the support that our pre-K Summer Program receives from the school districts and the teachers,” said Director of the Success By 6 Program, Bonnie Holmes. “I am pleased that they recognize the benefits of this excellent learning program.”

Supported by the United Way, the Success By 6 program strives to increase the effectiveness of the community to meet the needs of children up to age six and their families.

By sharing information and exploring new collaborations for service delivery, Success By 6 seeks to mobilize resources to ensure all children are physically, socially, emotionally and behaviorally able to learn when entering school.
