Parents, do you want to improve your own literacy skills, while also helping your child prepare for school? ProJeCt can help!

The Family Literacy program offers parents the opportunity to improve their own literacy skills and learn how to become their child’s first and most important teacher, while children learn critical early literacy skills and become better prepared to enter school. This program includes free, high quality preschool for children ages 0-5.

The program includes:

  • Adult Literacy – Parents participate in one of our literacy classes: Adult Basic Education, General Educational Development (GED®) preparation, or English as a Second Language.
  • Parenting Education and Support – Parents learn how to support their child’s learning and how to create a literacy-rich home.
  • Early Childhood Education – Children ages 0-5 attend high quality preschool in our early childhood education center. Instruction prepares children for success in school.
  • Parent/Child Interactive Literacy Activities – The entire family participates in Interactive Literacy Activities (ILA), which enable parents and children to share a positive interaction and to learn together.

The program is provided free of charge. ProJeCt’s staff of qualified teachers is committed to helping each family achieve their goals.

ProJeCt’s Family Literacy Program is the only one of its kind in the region, because it combines adult education with child development in a way that benefits the entire family. Our program gives families the tools to succeed in work, school and life.

Parents are a child’s first and most important teacher. Contact us today to find out how we can help your family learn together!
