Learning Lab helps families break the intergenerational cycle of illiteracy.
Our program incorporates the four components of family literacy recognized by the National Center for Families Learning:
- Adult basic skills
- Early childhood education
- Parent and Child Together (PACT) time and parenting skills
Parents and their children attend classes at the Lab twice a week. While parents are working on their basic skills, their children attend early childhood programs in a preschool or infant-toddler classroom.
A preschool program for three to five-year-olds emphasizing emergent literacy and school readiness, and a curriculum for birth to three-year-olds designed to enhance early brain development.
Parenting skills instruction emphasizes topics such as child development, appropriate discipline, parenting stresses and how to provide a developmentally appropriate home environment while fostering reading, writing and math readiness skills.
