Lifelong Learning Institute an asset to Franklin, Massachusetts
On its website, the Lifelong Learning Institute explains that its mission is to offer all area residents the benefits of the educational and social enrichment resources available from the Franklin Public School system:
“The Lifelong Learning Institute is the community education branch of the Franklin Public Schools in Franklin, MA. Lifelong Learning provides educational experiences for Franklin residents (and those from surrounding towns) from pre-school through retirement and beyond. This all-encompassing mission is accomplished through the efforts of dedicated employees of the Franklin Public Schools, and is supplemented with the talents of a number of our “friends in education” who partner and collaborate with us. The Lifelong Learning Institute is a fully functioning part of the Franklin Public Schools and has been in existence since the fall of 1998.”
The Institute maintains a total of six categories of programs for the public. In addition to the classes and activities sponsored by the Institute’s Lifelong Community Learning program described in this post, the Institute also provides a vital service in its Solutions Extended Day program. The Solutions program gives parents and guardians of young children safe and affordable before-school and after-school childcare services – a godsend for busy working families.
