All the Way to K and Beyond!

bubbles.INTRO

CMOM’s All the Way to K and Beyond! (ATWTK) website includes hands-on art-making, music, and storytelling activities that model simple and engaging strategies for fostering language skills at home and in the community. It offers resources to help engage parents, caregivers and professionals with language and literacy strategies to help prepare children aged birth – 5 years to thrive in pre-K and beyond.

ATWTK is a new citywide initiative of the Children’s Museum of Manhattan, the New York City Department of Education and the New York City Administration for Children’s Services. Funding for the initiative is provided by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and the Meringoff Family Foundation.

ATWTK is grounded in language and literacy research from Johns Hopkins University Science of Learning Institute which demonstrates that families can engage in important literacy and language behaviors to support kindergarten readiness and a love of learning. This project is an integral part of the Museum’s work to connect home, school, and community learning through partnerships with City agencies and community-based organizations.
