Running out of rainy day activities with your toddler? Want to prepare your youngster for school? Check out the LIFT classes now being held throughout Lincoln County.
“LIFT: Learning is Fun Together!” is a kindergarten readiness class for children ages 3-5 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 better prepared for school.
The Playgroup at Toledo Elementary School is based on the LIFT model, but is offered to younger children, birth to five years of age, and their parents. Other class details vary by site. Call for more information and to register your child for this fun learning and social activity.
