Adults with Children Together

“If we are to raise literacy standards in any significant way, we need to do more to ensure that all parents have the confidence to support their children’s developing literacy and in so doing are encouraged to develop their own literacy.”
– Ruth Hayden, PhD, Professor Emeritus

Program Values

Together, adults and children learn new skills, gain confidence and have fun! Our programs provide families with the opportunity to reach their literacy goals together in a safe and supportive group. Our programs build on their everyday family practices and provide them with new and engaging ways to include literacy activities in their routine.

This fall, programs are being offered both online and in person. Registration will be open from August 22-29, 2022.
