Family Literacy

Family Literacy is critical to a child’s success
in school and life.

Parents are a child’s first and most important teacher.  

Yet, many parents don’t know how to support their babies, toddlers, and preschoolers’ in language and literacy development. 

As a result, 40% of Island children are not fully prepared for school by the time they enter Kindergarten.

Our goal is to inform parents and give them free resources to help them raise readers and future thinkers.  Afterall, our children today will be our leaders tomorrow.

Remember, play is kid’s work – so make it fun!  

Physical activity is also essential as it builds strong muscles which are needed for sitting and writing. So get your kids moving.
