Our Winter Family Literacy Programs

It’s never too early to instill a love of learning and families play an important role. Our programs help build the confidence and skills parents need to open the door to a lifetime of learning, and they have fun with their children at the same time! All of our programs are free.

Flit – Our Free Family Literacy App

Now Available for both Android and iOS!

We just added four new activities!

Early interactions with your children, like sharing books, talking, singing, or playing, help lay the foundation for early language and literacy – essential skills for success.

Parents will find specially tailored and curated activities ranging from reading, recipes, rhymes and games specifically designed to build strong reading, writing and literacy skills in their child, and have FUN doing it!

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.
