Program Overview

Early Childhood Education/Parent and Child Time (PACT):
During our parent and child time,
families are immersed in an environment where there are rich adult/child interactions.These interactions include parenting skills, parents and children learning through play, and the transference of these skills to the home environment. During PACT time, parents are engaged in a variety of simulations that allow them to role-play what happens at home, so they can better support their children in
learning literacy skills along with other parenting techniques.

Children's Education

The Early Childhood Education curriculum
used by the Family Literacy Center utilizes evidence-based curriculum resourcesto enhance the early-childhood learning experiences of our students (ages 3-5).The curriculum for Early Childhood Education is the Frog Street series which is
inclusive of reading, math, writing, science, and social studies skills. This curriculum also provides our instructors(s) with differentiation techniques,social and emotional learning, andcognitive performance. .

Parent Education Workshops provide parents with the resources they need to increase their levels of self-sufficiency and knowledge as parents as well enhancing their children's depth of knowledge. During parent time, parents learn life
skills, parenting skills, and child development skills. Parents are alsoprovided with community resources as well as information on health and wellness.
