Success Story

Prep Time Strengthens Teaching Practice, Innovation, and Dedication!

Teachers report The Big Lift program enables prep time for them to strategize how to get parents involved in their child’s preschool, plan for Raising a Reader (RAR) workshop, and allows them time to collaborate about classroom challenges and how to best approach them. Before prep time, there was just no time for teachers to stop, sit down and reflect about our classrooms and the curriculum.
