First Steps PTO's mission

Our mission is to ensure that families with children, birth to entry into kindergarten, can participate in the First Steps-Ann Arbor program and receive the parent education and family support so fundamental to their future success.

All proceeds from Kid Fest go directly to support family scholarships. Last year the First Steps PTO helped more than 150 children have access to this important program. You can help create even more opportunities for families by purchasing tickets and attending KidFest!   


Can't attend but still want to support some scholarships? You are always welcome to make a donation.

Thank you so much to all our Sponsors and all our Auction Contributors.
