Parenting and Family Literacy Centres Commercial
Take a peek into a PFLC any morning and you will see parents, grandparents, and caregivers actively involved in all aspects of a play-based learning environment alongside their children from birth to age six. Research clearly shows that through music, stories and play, babies and young children can start to build essential skills like sharing, early literacy, and numeracy. Children become familiarized with school routines and families are given the chance to meet and offer support to other families with young children. Families are also given the opportunity to learn about community resources, and to have their parenting concerns addressed.
The Ministry of Education recognizes that parent engagement matters. Student achievement improves when parents play an active role in their child’s education, and good schools become even better schools when parents are involved. Parent engagement is the cornerstone of our 5 Parenting and Family Literacy Centres.
The program is free to attend and no pre-registration is required. Feel free to drop in any time for additional information and a tour of our classroom.
