Early literacy program
Early childhood professionals have tremendous impact on the language development and future academic success of children in their care. The Early Literacy Program provides resources to help childcare providers, teachers and directors inspire a life-long love of reading to children.
Childcare consultants are available to lend books from the resource van, provide books to early childhood programs and offer on-site training on literacy topics.
We participate in a county-wide “Read with Me Week” in collaboration with other literacy-based organizations: Raising a Reader, Reach Out and Read, Garfield County Public Libraries, Barefoot Books, and the Early Childhood Network.
