FAMILY LITERACY SERVICES

Family Literacy #3

We know that building strong literacy skills in childhood have an incredible impact on the child’s future educational success.

The Adult Literacy League’s offers two Family Literacy Programs: Read to My Baby! and Read to Me! Book Club

PROGRAM HISTORY

Since 1998, the Adult Literacy League, Inc. has been a premier provider of family literacy services, working with parents that have children between the ages of 3 and 5. In 2016, we added Read to My Baby!, expanding the program by including parents that have children ages 0-2. We believe that literate parents raise literate children and we work to increase literacy skills beginning at the youngest age.

Our goal is to break the cycle of poverty by building effective pre-literacy skills for children ages zero to six, to increase their success in school and their ability to become independent readers by 3rd grade. Parent training—provided as part of the program—prepares the parents to become the first and most effective teacher in their children’s lives.

PARTICIPATING FAMILIES WILL

  • Receive a new book and related literacy activities weekly.
  • Return a brief activity sheet to the teacher or our program manager upon completion.
  • Receive the next installment of book and activity at their home. This allows us to monitor each family’s success and provide support when needed.
  • Attend parent-child workshops once during each eight-week segment for training on how to make reading a fun and integral part of their children’s lives.
