Family Literacy

Why Choose Family Literacy?

You are your child’s first and most important teacher.

“Family Literacy has helped me to help my children. It has taught me so many different strategies on how to help my children’s educational development, especially my three-year-old daughter.

Today I can sit with my children and help them with their homework, and actually understand what they need help with. This brings so much joy to me!

The Family Literacy Program has been so beneficial not only to me but to my entire family. My children say ‘Mommy, we’re so proud of you!’ What more can I ask for?”
