About BIG STEPS for Little Friends

Since 1975, NLF has supported San Francisco and Bay Area families by offering high-quality, affordable, bilingual, multicultural and educational preschool and after school programs.  All proceeds from this fundraising event will benefit our children’s programs and the Plant a Seed Campaign (PASC) for our expanded preschool facilities.  More information about NLF and the PASC can be found on our website: www.nlfchildcare.org.
