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 for kindergarten. This program includes free, high quality preschool for children ages 0-5.
The program includes:
Adult Education: Parents participate in one of our Adult 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 kindergarten success.
Parent/Child Interactive Literacy Activities: The entire family participates in Interactive Literacy Activities (ILA), which enable parents and children to learn together.
