Pictured above are parents participating in Motheread.
Motheread classes provide parents with the skills and encouragement to become their child's first and most important teacher. Using curriculum based on multicultural children's books, these classes help parents support the age-appropriate, literacy skill development of their infants, toddlers and preschoolers while improving their own listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills.
The class has become so popular with moms, this month three new fathers signed up for the class.
After a 'Back to School' Fair at Iglesia Camino two weeks ago, the next two sessions are completely booked. For more information contact Jeni Llerena, Program manager at 704.226.1429.
Motheread is funded through Alliance for Children and provided through a partnership with the Literacy Council of Union County.
