Girl Scouts and friends took part in games to build s’mores at a celebration for the treat at Deer Lakes Park on Thursday, Aug. 9, 2018.

Girls in preschool can now join the Girl Scouts as part of a new extended registration program allowing enrollment at a younger age.

Any girl entering kindergarten this fall is eligible to take part in the new Daisy Launch initiative. A $35 membership will last until Sept. 30, 2020.

When the girls enter kindergarten they will become full-fledged Daisy Girl Scouts.

Daisies are the youngest Girl Scouts, in kindergarten and first grade.

Previously, children could not join the program until they were in kindergarten. A typical 1-year membership costs $25.

Girls in the Daisy Launch program will have a chance to earn their first badge, and be able to take part in local Girl Scout events such as trips to a Pirates game and the Pittsburgh Zoo.

The Girl Scouts of Western Pennsylvania will host several upcoming Daisy Launch events with more information on the program:

• Sewickley: 4 p.m. May 1 at Sewickley Public Library, 500 Thorn St.

• Avonmore: 10 a.m. May 5 at Camp Skymeadow, 164 Sky Meadow Road.

• Greensburg: 6 p.m. May 14, Girl Scouts of Western Pennsylvania Office, 126 E Otterman St.

• New Kensington: 6 p.m. May 14, Memorial Park, 1500 Stevenson Blvd.

• Irwin: 5:30 p.m. May 20, New Hope Presbyterian Church, 12727 Lincoln Way.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
