Family literacy offers a more innovative and proactive approach to literacy development. We open new windows of opportunity so that all Alberta families achieve what they imagine—improved education, jobs, and health.
In 2017 over 10,000 individuals were served by our programs, services, and training!
This fall the Centre will offer a continuum of family literacy programs that intentionally moves adults and their preschool children from entry level programs to more advanced learning.
The continuum is a series of three of our programs offered over 26-30 weeks with five partner agencies. Our intention is to customize the site’s program continuum to reflect the needs of the families in that particular community.
This is a new way of looking at how we deliver our programs and how we build on what parents have learned from one program to the next.

It’s never too early!
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.
