Family Literacy

Family Literacy – Family School

Family Literacy recognizes that family is the strongest element in shaping lives and learning. Our community sponsors a program, Family School that encompasses the literacy needs of both parents and young children, family play interaction time, parenting skills, and English as Language Learners programming. On three afternoons each week, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, from 12:30 pm-3:00 pm, families come together to build the tools they need to become stronger and more self-sufficient. These classes are free.

Parents learn about key topics; classroom routines, encouraging pre-reading skills, parent-child communication, guest speakers on nutrition, discipline issues, community resources, visits to Heritage Library, teaching responsibility, building routines for children, and solving medical/dental needs. As children learn with an early childhood teacher in the classroom, parents study English in another classroom. Our program has the capability of working with families immigrating from all different countries.
