Get Set is celebrating over 50 years of offering high-quality free preschool to children ages 4 to 5 for families who qualify financially. Get Set offers a creative learning environment that prepares kids for school. We provide van transportation for children in surrounding neighborhoods. Children experience field trips, music, gym time, chapel, crafts and fun activities and receive a daily hot lunch.
Each day, Get Set Preschoolers are served a hot lunch prepared by volunteers and staff. Help stock the pantry by bringing in cheese slices,
cheese snacks, chicken broth, Chicken & Stars soup, canned pears, canned peaches, canned pineapple, canned Mandarin oranges, canned fruit cocktail, dried fruit, Cheez-It crackers, Ritz crackers, Chex Mix, pretzels, non-sugary cereals, ketchup or ranch dressing.
Get Set is a happy and secure environment where the children can learn and grow physically, socially, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually.
We are proud to offer the Souns Early Literacy Program at Get Set Preschool. We see children eager to learn and read. Souns places specifically designed and sequenced letters of our phonetic alphabet into the hands of our preschoolers. Their hands hold, play with and explore the letters. Since each letter is given only one label—the most common sound of that letter—the child slowly builds a base of letter-sound associations for the early stages of reading. Learning becomes incidental, natural and fun! Children love learning their sounds, building words and reading with the Souns Program.
