Education doesn’t just begin when a child reaches kindergarten– it begins at birth.
Over the years The School Foundation has prided itself on supporting and contributing to Florence School District 1′s K-12 teachers and students. With the creation of the Start SMART program, we’ve added a brand new goal– assisting parents in preparing their children for kindergarten.
For those of our patrons who can’t make our normal storytimes, we present prerecorded videos of our children’s staff reading several different books that you can access through our new YouTube channel.
