The Half Moon Bay community works to ensure all students are supported so they may reach their personal potential. Cabrillo Unified School District is focused on serving students in supportive learning environments and working in partnership with students, families, and community agencies to develop students as the next generation of critical thinkers and socially responsible citizens.
The Big Lift has been absolutely instrumental to our goal of better serving the literacy needs of our coastside community.

A 3-Year Old’s Exciting Start at His Big Lift Preschool!
Since day one, the child engaged very positively with all the other children and likes to talk about how everyone is his friend. When another child is sad or upset, he will approach them and ask if they are okay. He uses his words and talks a lot about his feelings. He is very interested in books and will read to his baby brother by starting with the words “once upon a time…”, then make up a story by looking at the pictures in the book and showing his baby brother. His vocabulary has expanded. His mom says she was surprised when they passed by a construction site and he pointed at a machine and said “Look mommy, it’s an excavator!”
