MAKE LIFE-CHANGING LEARNING
A REALITY FOR ALL
We did it!
Today we reached $15,000 in donations to Open Door Preschool, every dollar of which was matched thanks to a generous gift from our site partner, Arlington Hills Lutheran Church.
That means $30,000 of preschool snacks, music classes, field trips and family literacy learning! Thank you for partnering with us to support Open Door Preschool!
At Literacy Minnesota, we promote the power of entire families learning together. Our Open Door Preschool allows young children to participate in enriching activities that promote kindergarten-readiness while their parents attend classes just down the hall. It cultivates a positive learning environment both in and out of the classroom.
