Kindergarten Family Fun Nights. The Kindergarten Family Fun Night program has been a successful program for twelve years.  Programs are scheduled at each of the elementary schools for the kindergarten students and their parents.  The goal of the KFFN program is to provide children and parents with age-appropriate activities that make learning fun.  The kindergarten teachers, Step Ahead coordinator, and public librarians work with us to provide an educational and fun learning opportunity.  Family meals and child care are provided.  Check with your school for upcoming dates and registration information.
