Research has repeatedly confirmed that family engagement in a child’s early learning supports later academic success. At Literacy Lab, we believe that parent and caregiver involvement is a critical element of a child’s development. Our Family & Educator Workshop program educates, supports, and activates parents, childcare providers, service providers, and teachers on the critical importance of being involved in a child’s early learning and how to implement strategies that foster a child’s literacy, language, and overall development. We believe that when parents, caregivers, and supporters get activated, children are ready to learn and ready for school and communities get stronger. this program is designed to reach a child’s “first teacher”–their parents and caregivers as well as service providers and teachers.
