SUMMER-BOOST KINDERGARTEN READINESS PROGRAM

Since 2013, NET has been the forerunner in funding the transportation costs related to the Summer Boost Kindergarten Readiness, a program designed for Nantucket's youngest islanders. This gift continues to decrease barriers to participation and ensures consistent attendance to this integral pre-kindergarten experience.  Summer Boost is designed for children with limited exposure to academic skills including  letter and number recognition, language, fine and gross motor skills and pro-social activities.  More than 120 children have grown from this generous gift.
