The Koch Family Children's Museum of Evansville (cMoe) has a special event planned for the class of 2026.

New kindergartners and their parents are invited to celebrate all things kindergarten on at the museum August 3 for "Kindergarten…Here I Come" from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Those who attend can expect to visit the Countdown to Kindergarten classroom, climb aboard a real school bus, practice crossing the street with a crossing guard, and get information about community resources.

Plus, the first 50 kindergartners to arrive out of the more than 300 expected to attend will receive free T-shirts. 

"Kindergarten…Here I Come!" is a part of the museum's Countdown to Kindergarten initiative designed to promote school readiness and early childhood education.

Emily Endress, Director of Education & Outreach, says that while the event's activities are geared toward children who will soon be entering kindergarten, the program is also a chance to reinforce the importance of early childhood learning in general.

"Our goal is to get kids excited about learning and to give parents some tools and skills they can use at home to encourage school readiness," says Endress.

The event is made possible with support from the Marilyn J. Klenck Fund for Education and Literacy, EVSC, and 4C of Southwestern Indiana.

cMoe's mission is to spark the curious minds and imagination of children and their families through dynamic exhibits, programs and activities.

The museum is located at the corner of 5th and Locust streets in Downtown Evansville.
