Online Training Week 2020
Please join us virtually December 14th - 17th!
The Centre has trained thousands in the practice of family literacy across the country. Through experience, research and collaboration, we have developed standards of excellence that are shared with others in the field. Practitioners are encouraged to use these standards for their own programs, and as a tool to evaluate program effectiveness.
We are pleased to offer the following for Training Week 2020:
Family Literacy FUNdamentals

Children who begin life in a learning environment are more likely to succeed in school and in life and parents are their first teachers. Our programs provide parents with the tools they need to support their children’s early language and literacy development.
It’s never too late!
We also support adult learners on their literacy journey, building on strengths and meeting the individual needs of the learners.
