We are so very proud of our graduating preschoolers!! In spite of this nutty year, families showed up, in person or on Zoom, and worked hard. This year 8 preschoolers are moving on to kindergarten. Thanks to our #FamilyLiteracy program, they are confident and prepared for this next step!

Family Literacy
Learning Lab teaches parents and children together to break the intergenerational cycle of illiteracy and poverty. Our program incorporates the four components of family literacy recognized by the National Center for Family Literacy: 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. During each class, parents join their preschool children for intergenerational, education-based activities. Parents are taught how to incorporate educational experiences for their children at home.

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.

English Language Learning
Students learn English conversation, vocabulary, and pronunciation in addition to the basic skills instruction as offered in Adult Basic Skills.

GED Prep Classes
Our classes provide a supportive and positive environment from start to finish including:

An individualized assessment of current skills including practice tests to determine if the student is ready to take one or more of the tests right away.

Individualized instruction to help study for tests. Instruction includes educational software and one-on-one help from trained volunteer tutors.
No one is turned away because of inability to pay.
