The Please Touch Museum will use its grant to develop an interactive mobile communications application and website that will serve as a tool to support families through the kindergarten transition years. The mobile application will translate existing resource literature and tools, such as a readiness checklist, activity calendar, and parent-child activities into a digital format. A website, containing the same components as the mobile application, will be created to ensure the resources reach the widest audience possible. The project will establish and work with a network of partners in the Philadelphia area to help determine which resources will best benefit users of the app and website.
