Description of Service
Family Literacy Program focuses on integrating the education of parents and children. This program encourages parents to participate in and get excited about their own learning, which impacts their children’s attitude toward education.
The Family Literacy Program has four components:
- Adult Education: Adults in the Family Literacy Program who reach enrollment status will receive an average of 50 hours of instruction in adult education during the program year. The educational component instructs adults in basic reading, writing and math skills. GED test prep, job readiness and computer literacy are also part of the curriculum.
- Parenting Education: Parents who reach enrollment status will also receive an average of 25 hours of parenting education instruction during the program year.
- Interactive Literacy Activity: Families that reach enrollment status will participate in an average of 35 hours of interactive literacy instruction during the program year. The interactive literacy activity cultivates the stages of a child’s development.
- Early Childhood Education: In each Family Literacy Program, pre-school children (ages 3-5) will participate in an average of 150 hours of early childhood instruction during the program year.
