Program Description

Program Details


Invest in your child's future! Learn fun ways to engage children in literacy play and turn everyday experiences into learning activities to help children be ready for school. Families participate together in hands-on activities that support early literacy skills. Get ready-to-use ideas on how to turn everyday experiences-like fixing meals, giving baths, or riding in the car-into learning activities!

This series of five 90-minute workshops is for adults/caregivers and their children ages 3-6. Please submit one registration for the entire family.

Raising School-Ready Readers is based on Engaging Families in Children’s Literacy Development created by Scholastic.
