Literacy: A Family Approach
July 1, 2019 - June 30, 2020
In the Literacy: A Family Approach course, young parents learn about their part in role modelling literacy learning for the whole family, discuss practical strategies for creating literacy-rich environments in the home, discover how to use daily activities to strengthen the emergent literacy skills of children, and build literacy skills and strategies to support everyday living. The program also includes a group time for parents and their children to share familiar songs and games, learn new rhymes, fingerplays and songs, share ideas about selecting books and reading together with children. Meals and childcare are provided.
