Learning is Fun Together (LIFT)

kindergarten readiness

“LIFT: Learning is Fun Together!” is a kindergarten readiness class for children ages three to five years old and their parents. LIFT is based on the philosophy that parents are the most important teachers of their children and that young children learn primarily through play. LIFT classes provide a variety of play-based learning activities that help children reach their potential and be prepared for school.
