What does Emily think about the KITS program?
“KITS is an incredible program that builds upon the strengths of the children and families to start school being excited and having the tools to succeed. It is always so inspiring to see how much the children learn and grow into themselves throughout the program ready to enter their first year of school.”
What’s her favorite children’s book?
“I loved all books as a child especially Clifford, Amelia Bedelia and Roald Dahl.”
