Scroll down for Summer Bridge

What a child experiences during the first five years of life will greatly influence her/his progress in school. This is the third year that the School Readiness Program has been implemented at the Community Center.  We have introduced, serviced, referred, played with, blessed over 250 children under the age of 5 and their families during this time!   Now, families with young children have a “community” to socialize with, learn from, and give and gain resources from.  New families come to the Community Center regularly to find out more information about the Ready, Set, Go School Readiness Program.  We have many different activities, events, and resources for all families and all are FREE and Bi-lingual.  For more information on the program or any events listed call Heather, Coordinator, at 488-4118 ext 251 or email
