Program Overview

StoryCycles®, our school-to-home book-sharing program, provides families with the access they need to high-quality children's books. Our multilingual books are age- and culturally-appropriate, and are sent home with children on a weekly basis from schools, family child care centers, and other Tandem partner sites throughout San Francisco, Alameda, and Contra Costa counties.

Our professional development opportunities for educators and family support staff include training, interactive workshops, and access to our knowledge base on how to get parents excited about, & more deeply engaged in, their children's early development.

Tandem also offers workshops and training opportunities to families to deepen their knowledge of early childhood brain development and share simple, effective strategies for building language and literacy through everyday activities, including book-sharing.

Literacy Champions, our parent leadership development program, engages parent leaders in a series of intensive trainings so these parents can, in turn, train other parents in their own communities on how to use everyday moments to build children's early literacy skills.
