Daisy Girl Scouts is a program designed for girls in Kindergarten-1st grade, or ages 5-7 years old.

According to the Girl Scout Website, “the Girl Scout program can change the way girls see the world and their place in it. Girls learn the importance of personal responsibility, the value of goal-setting, the spirit of teamwork, and the thrill of accomplishment. The Girl Scout program is based on the Girl Scout

Promise and Law and four fundamental goals that encourage girls to:

  • Develop to their full potential.
  • Relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect.
  • Develop a meaningful set of values to guide their actions and to provide for sound decision-making.
    Contribute to the improvement of society.”
