Family Literacy

Parents are their child’s first teachers. We offer programming to help strengthen parent’s skills.  

Benefits of programs:

  • helps parents support their children’s learning
  • increases children’s language and literacy skills
  • gives parents the opportunity to connect with other parents and the community
  • encourages parents to pursue your own learning goals

Programs are for parents/caregivers with children up to 6 years old.
