Promoting the Importance of Early Literacy to Families with Young Children

The work is hands-on and on-the-ground as the Early Literacy Strategy Group lets families know that singing, playing, reading, talking, smiling, and snuggling with children, starting from birth, are important aspects of early literacy.

Strategy Activities

The team is working with local schools and has developed a curriculum for high school students to learn about early literacy and develop presentations to pass the information along to other students.

The group is also taking the message on the road with the Early Literacy Roadshow Kit, which contains no cost/low cost ideas to help adults engage with children.
