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.
