School Readiness

Help your child do well in school, from birth to college

Is your child getting close to school age? Maybe you have a baby and want to get them started learning early? Or maybe you have a child in middle school who just needs help loving to read?

We have programs for you!


Storytime is an hour of stories and creative learning. You and your child will learn songs and dances, listen to a variety of tales, and practice cognitive and fine motor skills that will be invaluable once they start school.
